Introducing Rey Campero Cuishe Mezcal, a distinguished 750ml expression crafted from the wild Cuishe agave, revered for its exceptional quality. This mezcal is a testament to the patience and dedication required to produce a truly remarkable spirit, as the Cuishe agave takes a remarkable 9-12 years to reach full maturity.

The production process of Rey Campero Cuishe Mezcal is steeped in tradition and expertise. The wild Cuishe agave hearts are roasted for an extended period of 4-5 days, resulting in a distinctive smoky character. Following the roasting, the agave is open-air fermented using naturally occurring wild yeast, allowing the flavors to develop naturally and reflect the terroir of the Oaxacan Highlands. The mezcal is then double-distilled in traditional copper-pot stills, ensuring the preservation of the agave's essence and delivering a refined and authentic spirit.

Mezcalero Rómulo Sánchez Parada, a master of his craft, oversees the production of Rey Campero Cuishe Mezcal. Having learned the art of mezcal production from his father and honing his skills in the palenque until the age of 20, Parada carries forward the legacy of generations. After a few years spent living and working in North Carolina, he returned to Oaxaca in 2003, bringing his invaluable experience and passion back to the heartland of mezcal production.

    What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

    Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

    Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

    One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

    Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

    In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
