Helmed by Romulo Sanchez Parada, this family collective chose the name Rey Campero, meaning “King of the Countryside”, to reflect the relationship between the landscape and those who work so tirelessly to harvest the magueys from this challenging terrain. With over 70 years of combined experience, Rey Campero represents the culture and tradition of Candelaria Yegolé, a small village in Zoquitlán, a municipality nestled within Oaxaca’s southern mountain range, the Sierra Sur.
The light-on-its-feet character of this mezcal belies the feisty Cuishe (Agave karwinskii) variety from which it was made. Tomatillo, ginger, fresh hay and orange zest dance on the palate as they might in the summer sun, followed by a delicate note of honeydew. An unusually bright and refreshing example from the often sultry Romulo.
