About this destilado de agave

Rezpiral Espadin was originally released in Series 2 of 2017. This mezcal was made by Leonardo Hernandez in San Baltazar Guelevila, Oaxaca. The agave were cooked in an earthen oven, milled by horse-drawn tahona, and double distilled in a copper alembique still.


Rezpiral brings selections of high-quality traditional small-batch (non-certified) Mezcals into a handful of places in the USA. At the core of the project is the embrace of an ethos that aims to respect and support the multi-generational knowledge, independence, flavors, lands, and ways of each mezcalero family.

Rezpiral’s small scale allows for the advocacy of diversity on different levels, from supporting the autonomy of producers & their continued production of artisanal mezcals to the preservation of local land control. Rezpiral actively supports master artisan’s proactive planting and management of agave; recollecting and incubating seeds, transplanting and farming diverse species of endemic agave in sustainable ways. Rezpiral directs 10% of earnings back into supporting artisans farming.

Rezpiral has a regional greenhouse to support independent small scale mezcaleros in cultivating and reforesting their lands with local endangered wild agave varietals. They also are highly focused on a cultural and conservation residency program.

Very nice subtle wood smoke and guava on the nose, much the same on the palate – some light wood smoke, guava and sweetness, green avocado and a little slight bitter bite at the end to keep it from being too sweet. Very nice and balanced, would buy again, definitely try some if you find it, probably out of circulation already!
