Real Minero is the brand of the Ángeles-family from Santa Catarina Minas. Being in fourth generation Mezcal-producers, father Don Lorenzo and son Eduardo work the distillery, while mother Doña Florentina is doing the bottling and daughter Graciela the marketing. The famous quality of the Mezcales Mineros comes from its distillation in earthenware pots, a tremendously laborious technique, which yields the most impressive spirits. Further peculiarities of Mineros are the use of different wild or cultivated agaves, which are distilled individually or composed in the mash. Often there are only 100 or 200 liters of these special batches produced. Genuine Mineros are surely among the best spirits in the world. Real Minero Largo is made with 100% agave Largo, which is a member of the Karwinskii family, and is known for it’s high salinity. The Real Minero Largo is peppery with notes of peanuts and coconut. It’s one of the finer mezcals on the market and it is reportedly the favorite of Graciela, who runs Real Minero operations.
