One of the most authentic regional Mezcal Spirits we’ve had this year.

The Hernandez Family has been distilling at their El Rey Zapoteco Distillery in Matalán, Oaxaca, for sixty years. The distillery was founded in 1960 by Don Serafín Hernandez Blas making them the oldest artisanal Mezcal brand in Oaxaca — the center of Mezcal making. They produce one of the finest ranges of Mezcal Spirits in the region with seven varietals. The family has its own land, making El Rey Mezcal a true estate producer of premium Mezcal.

El Rey Zapoteco Mezcal is made from 100% Espadin agave. The agave piñas are harvested by hand, slow roasted, and ground under a traditional horse-drawn stone tahona, fermented with naturally-occurring yeasts, and distilled in copper. It’s an un-aged Joven bottled at a solid 45% ABV, making it one of the most authentic Mezcal Spirits you’ll find.
