THIS SUMMER'S HOTTEST SPIRIT.

Once Campante touches your lips, it will impress upon your soul, deepening your understanding of what makes this spirit so special.FIND US
THE HEART OF THE MEZCALERO AND THE HEART OF THE AGAVE.
In the nutrient-dense valleys and mountainsides of Oaxaca, there are more than 14 different variants of agave. We use our knowledge and expertise to find Espadin & Barril agave hearts, known as ‘pinas’, that are ready to be harvested.
LIKE THE HUMAN HEART,THE AGAVE PIÑA
CONTAINS A SPIRIT THAT MUST BE
After the harvest, each carefully selected piña is piled around a mound of river rocks, which are then slowly heated by a quietly burning fire. Everything is covered with earth and left to cook for days, until the piñas are caramelized. This is where Campante develops its sweet aroma and rich flavor.
GRINDING AND FERMENTATION
WE BELIEVE THE MEZCAL CANNOT BE MASS-PRODUCED BECAUSE THE MAGIC CONTAINED IN EVERY DROP IS EXTINGUISHED WHEN YOU SKIP STEPS, OR TRY TO HURRY THE PROCESS.
That is why we grind our cooked piñas in exactly the same way it has been done for centuries: with two oxen and a large stone wheel called a tahona. The oxen are led around, until every fiber of every golden-brown piña is oozing with fermentable sugars.
The mash is then collected and placed in large wooden vats and left to ferment for days, until the Maestro Mezcalero decides it is time to distill.
DISTILLATION OF CAMPANTE BEGINS
WHEN THE MEZCAL MASTER FEELS THAT
THE MASH HAS HAD ENOUGH TIME TO DEVELOP.
The ferments are then placed in large copper stills and heated, so that the spirit of Campante can rise in its most powerful form. Campante is distilled twice, which leaves us with a silvery liquid that is 40% ABV and is the smoothest mezcal around.DISCOVER OUR MEZCAL
