A full-throated, unapologetic expression of the Mexican Spirit.

The Reyes Y Demonios brand of Mezcal was founded in 2014 by chef Daniel Tellez Reynoso and mezcaleros Juan Claudio and Juan Manuel. The three men met in Sole de Vega, Oaxaca and set about to curate fine Mexican Spirits with the real flavor of the region. They are committed to sustainable harvest methods that respect the land and replant more agaves than they harvest each year.

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.

While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.

Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
