First, double-check the shipping address to make sure it’s correct. If the address is correct, file a claim with the carrier via your tracking link so that they can begin looking into the matter as soon as possible.
Then, reply to your order email or email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us about the issue so that we can also contact the retailer who shipped your order.

El Rey Zapoteco Mezcal FAQs
In 1960, in what was a remote area of Oaxaca known as La Higuera, Don Serafín Hernandez created El Rey Zapoteco. The business is now run by his wife Doña Juana and their sons in the exact same location where Don Serafín built the original palenque or distillery, but today the area is known as Santiago Matatlán, mezcal capital of the world. Caretakers of agave fields that routinely yield some of Oaxaca’s largest agaves, the Hernandez family are faithful stewards of traditional production techniques that remain the same as they were at their founding. As one of the few mezcal brands that owns its maguey fields, El Rey Zapoteco is afforded an unparalleled degree of control over the quality of its agriculture. Only fully mature or “capón” agaves are harvested, and for every agave that El Rey Zapoteco harvests, five seedlings are planted to ensure the sustainability of future generations.
