Paquera Barril is a bit smokier than their other releases, with a consistent floral undertone. The palate is buttery and full. Made with maguey Barril in Ejutla, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in an underground pit oven, mashed by horse-drawn tahona, fermented in oak vats, and double distilled in a copper still. This is the Premium option of the three Paquera releases.
Paquera’s mission and purpose is to contribute resources to the union de productores agropecuarios del distrito de Ejutla de crespo (UPADEC) which is a coalition of local palenques that work together to sustain and grow their micro-enterprises. This artisanal spirit is beloved by many and the brand is driven to honor its cultural importance in every bottle. The company strives to continue the history of appreciation and respect for the most precious spirit of all.
