Pechuga starts with Mezcal that has already been double distilled. Before the third distillation the mezcalero places the Mezcal in the still and adds wild fruits such as apples, plums, plantains, bananas, and pineapples, as well as several pounds of uncooked white rice. Next, a whole raw chicken breast, turkey breast, or piece of venison is delicately suspended in the atmosphere of the still. The third distillation begins and the Mezcal vapor passes over the meat and condenses into a clear liquid that has an amazing taste and smoothness.
