Rey Campero Tobalá Mezcal is made from the very sought-after Tobalá agave that grows at high altitudes up in the mountains. Since it’s low in sugar, it’s hard to produce large batches. Luckily Maestro Mezcalero Rómulo doesn’t mind as he crafts this expression with traditional methods. Roasting Tobalá underground and fermenting it with natural yeast in wood casks, he then double-distills it in a copper alembic still. This juicy mezcal is bottled at 96 proof and releases a lot of smoke, salty notes, grilled pineapple, lime zest, strawberries, and white chocolate on its smooth palate. The best-tasting experience is achieved when savoring it 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.
