Real Minero Espadin

Real Minero, situated in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca, stands as a testament to the dedication of the Ángeles family, who have passionately upheld the craft for generations. Their lineage traces back to the pioneering efforts of their great-grandfather, Don Francisco Ángeles, affectionately known as "Papá Chico". In 1978, he initiated the family's journey in Ocotlán, selling their spirits in humble plastic jugs and recycled bottles adorned with simple paper labels. Over the decades, Real Minero has evolved and is now recognized as one of Mexico's premier agave spirit producers. They've recently chosen to omit the term “mezcal” from their bottles, stemming from disagreements with Mexico’s official certification process. Beyond production, the Ángeles family is deeply involved in initiatives like Proyecto LAM, which underscores ecological responsibility, the preservation of age-old agave traditions, and a commitment to environmental stewardship and maguey conservation.

Exemplary in its complexity

This Real Minero expression offers a harmonious blend of smoky and sweet notes. Its lingering finish is a testament to masterful distillation

Would give 6 if I could

One of my – if not THE – favorite espadins out there. It’s perfectly balanced, you get all kinds of fruit notes, complex, clay, just the right like smoke, great finish, fragrant. Yes, it has its price, but if you want to try what espadin can really taste like, it’s worth to pay it.

Wish I could afford more of this stuff…

It’s a tough pill to swallow when you get ringed up at $120 at Bottle Barn. Don’t get me wrong, it is DAMNED good, and you feel the quality in every sip. But I would much rather get the local prices in Oaxaca than be gouged out local US retailers.
