Reyes Y Demonios Maguey Espadin Mezcal hales from the Rio Arena in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca. The Hernandez family has been harvesting the agave and making Mezcal there for five generations. They slow-roast the agave for 72 hours before pressing the piñas in a stone tahona. The mash is naturally fermented in open vats and the Spirit is double-distilled in copper pots to reach 42% ABV.
Mina Real Blanco is made with agave Espadin in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal are grown at about 4,800 feet above sea level. Once harvested, the agave are steam roasted in a cantera limestone kiln oven, milled with a shredder, fermented in 1,400 litre pine wood vats using airborne yeast, and double distilled in a small clay-pot still.
Wahaka Espadin Botaniko is a limited release. It's made by adding a bag of herbs to the copper still during the second distillation. The herbs are collected from nearby fields around San Dionisio Ocotepec. The process creates a clean mezcal with notes of juniper, cardamom, vanilla, lemon, and lavender.
