Rey Campero Mezcal, translating to "King of the Countryside," is a brand that truly embodies the spirit of Oaxaca. Founded by maestro mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada, who learned the art of mezcal from his father, the brand is a testament to the rich heritage of mezcal production. Rey Campero is all about high-quality agave, often aging their mezcal in glass before bottling for a softer feel. This family-run business is deeply rooted in the community of Candelaria Yegolé, with mezcal production being a family affair passed down through generations. Their commitment to the land and respect for traditional methods make Rey Campero a standout brand, sharing the wisdom of four generations of the Sanchez family with the world.

One of my favorite teps

This is an upper tier tepeztate. I would describe this as a higher-quality, lower-priced tep than El Jologorio’s option. And you won’t be bored – it’s quite complex. I have a bottle at home and plan to have it as a staple.

I love Rey Campero, I love Tepeztate. So for this bottle I had high hopes – and boy did it deliver. Very vegetal, pepper/jalapeño, earth, grass. You get a lot of that in the nose with every sip. A prominent, but not overpowering smokiness, same for sharpness, it’s there, but not too much. It’s quite complex, so you can sip it for a while without being bored.
