Based on the overwhelming popularity of Conejo’s Barril featured in the club back in June of 2019, we bottled up another one his Karwinskiis that many consumers aren’t too familiar with.

Most producers in Minas tell us that Marteño and Largo are the same plant that have become cultivated two different ways, providing two very different flavor profiles. The cultivated Marteño is unique to Santa Catarina Minas and the name comes from a nearby village called Santa Marta. 

Flavor Notes: wet earth, red dry fruits, floral flavors and aromas; the clay pot is very present.

We imported three karwinskiis, all from the same clay pots, all the same producer, distilled all in the same month. Feeling like an expert clay pot Karwinskii flight? See if you can identify the different profiles!

Antonio Carlos Martínez

AKA “Conejo”
(Mezcalero of June 2019 – Barril
)

Known locally as Conejo, this third generation mezcalero from Minas is the first in his family to own his own palenque. Over the last three years, his palenque grew from one tina to four paralleling his local popularity in the mezcal space. To his knowledge, his product has never made it north of the border by means other than a suitcase until now. He is known in Oaxaca centro as a fun, light hearted, welcoming mezcalero who offers an unforgettable tasting room experience. It’s very apparent that he is extremely connected to his community, his workers, his family, and his faith as you will see in the videos below.
