Rezpiral K&L Exclusive Espadin & Piñuela Series 5 (Simeon Ramirez) San Agostin Amatengo Mezcal (750ml) (Previously $130)

SKU #1491213

Another addition to K&L's ever-expanding selection of exclusive tequilas and mezcals, this micro-production, artisanal offering comes from one of the hidden gems of from our searches in the far reaches of mezcal country in Mexico. From the producer: "Rezpiral is a spirits label, project and fair trade practice that brings beautiful selections of the highest quality traditional artisanal single-batch (non-certified) Mezcals into a handful of places in the USA. At the core of the project is the embrace of an ethos that aims to respect and support the multi-generational knowledge, independence, flavors, lands and ways of each mezcalero family with whom we work. The project upholds quality and value, working from batch to batch, bringing to market an eclectic selection of spirits, each complex and excellent. Rezpiral’s small scale allows for the advocacy of diversity on different levels, from supporting the autonomy of producers & their continued production of single batch artisanal agave distillates to the preservation of local land control. These ethics seek to contribute to the countering of industrial standardization and cultural appropriation of this family & pueblo produced spirit and culture of excellence."

So this is an absolute oddity that we just couldn't pass up. This is not your typical mezcal, but instead some what of an experiment by the incredible team Simeon & Apolonio Ramirez in San Agustin Amatengo. Pinuelo is an usual mexican fruit that tastes something like pineapple. It's stocks are harvested and roasted with the agave including the seeds and husk. The resulting spirit has a character somewhere in between mezcal and agricole rhum. The nose is full of green earth aromas coupled with dense savory spice and high toned funky fruit. The palate is slightly more typical of mezcal, offering sweet agave nectar, green pepper, tropical fruit and hints of lactic acid. This one should be reserved for the geekiest of mezcal nerds and I encourage every single one of you to act before this totally weird and wonderful expression disappears. Only 60 bottles for the States.
