Madre Cuishe is 100% agave karwinskii (growing at a range of 2,500-6,000 feet) roasted in earthen pits, stone-ground, fermented with the aid of natural yeasts in wood casks and double-distilled in a copper alembic. The Rey Campero line is produced primarily of wild agaves harvested and distilled in Candelaria Yegolé, Oaxaca by master mezcalero Rómulo Sánchez Parada.

Tasting Notes

"Light hints of smoke and vanilla characterize the nose. Both it and the palate show less spice and citrus than other Rey Campero products yet there's still a pleasant edge that emerges underneath the refined and suave overall impression that results in part from double-distillation. A very pretty sipper."
