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.
2019, series #4, second release: six beautifully complex artisanal small batch agave spirits: A 77 liter batch of Mexicano & Tepextate ensamble crafted by Berta Vasquez, 150 liter batch of espadin crafted by Abel Martinez, a batch of Tequilana crafted by Reina Sanchez, a triple distilled Jabali created by Leo, a batch of Tobala with Frutas crafted by Aureliano Hernandez, and a batch of Tobaziche created by SImeon & Apolonio Ramirez.
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.
