Rey Campero Jabali Mezcal 700ml, 48.8% ABV
Adorned with rarity, the maguey wild boar, owing to its modest sugar content, seldom finds itself selected for the creation of mezcal. Yet, its presence graces the southern sierra of Oaxaca, particularly thriving amidst the arid embrace of its climate. Resilient and untamed, it flourishes in the wild, patiently maturing over a span of 15 to 18 years. This maguey, a testament to endurance, exudes an air of distinction, unveiling its unique essence in a realm where time is a revered artisan.
Mezcal's popularity continues to soar, with each bottle carrying the captivating stories that travel from the producers to the eager consumer. In the communities of Oaxaca, Mexico, the art of mezcal production is a treasured family tradition passed down through generations. Within these mezcal-making families, every member possesses a deep understanding of the entire process and undertakes various tasks. They nurture and harvest agave plants, perform meticulous preparatory work and distillation, and handle the packaging and marketing of this precious spirit.
This family and community work model represents an invaluable heritage deeply ingrained in Candelaria Yegolé, a small town nestled in the southeastern part of the Tlacolula Valley, at the foothills of the Sierra Sur de Oaxaca. The combination of unwavering dedication and profound reverence for the land has fostered the expertise of four generations of mezcal masters from Casa Sánchez. Today, they proudly share their wisdom with the world, offering exceptional mezcals through their Rey Campero releases, which encompass a wide array of agave varieties. Each bottle eloquently sings a unique melody, capturing the rich traditions and craftsmanship of the region.
