Crafted from Tepextate agave or agave Marmorata, Rey Campero Tepextate Mezcal is distilled in a copper pot still under the watchful eye of Rómulo Sánchez Parada. The agave has been cultivated by the family for decades; it’s harvested after a long period of 15-18 years. Bottled at 96 proof, expect to taste coriander, citrus, banana leaf, tobacco, pepper, and sweet smoke after the bouquet greets with white flowers and yellow pepper. Best savored neat.

Rey Campero means "King of the Countryside." Its story is tied to Mezcalero Rómulo Sánchez Parada, who learned all about producing mezcal from his father and grandfather, but the family tradition actually started with his great grandmother Clara Manzano Rios. She was the one who built the family’s palenque — the first in Candelaria Yegolé —in 1870 and started distilling with her husband Nicolas Sanchez. Initially, Rómulo Sánchez Parada emigrated to North Carolina but returned to Candelaria Yegolé, Mexico, in 2003 and started making Mezcal again with his family. This is a family with a rich history in making mezcal that spans more than 7 decades and 4 generations of Mezcaleros. Today, Rey Camepro is produced in Candelaria Yegolé, a tiny village of 150 people in the Oaxacan Highlands just as it once was, according to tradition and with sustainability in mind. They focus on producing the finest quality mezcal, finding new markets for the spirit, as well as creating job opportunities.
