About this destilado de agave

Rezpiral Tequilana is made by famed mezcalera Reina (Reyna) Sanchez in San Luis Amatlan, Oaxaca. She makes her mezcal with agave that were cooked in a pit oven, mashed by hand with mallets, and double distilled in a copper still. This particular mezcal is somewhat unique in that agave Blue Weber, which this is made from, is not very abundant in this region.

Rezpiral

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.
