About this destilado de agave

Rezpiral Tobala is made with agave Tobala that takes 9-10 years to reach maturity. Mezcalero Aureliano Hernandez crushes his cooked agave with a horse drawn tahona and he double distills his mezcal in a copper alembic still. This mezcal was released in 2018 as part of series three from Rezpiral.

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.

Series 2, 2017 Rezpiral bottle 65/400, Aureliano Hernandez Martinez

The nose on this is very restrained, some citrus rind and unripe avocado, opens up slightly with some tropical fruit with a drop of water

Cotton candy, guava, mango, steel and some heat on the palate. The flavors are subtle, little to no smoke, and well integrated – I have a hard time pulling one dominant flavor out.
