About this mezcal
Don Amado Pechuga is a vegan “Pechuga” similar to those produced by Wahaka and a few other brands. Traditionally, Pechuga mezcal is made by hanging a chicken breast in the still during the third distillation. This vegan Pechuga, however, uses a combination of locally-sourced wild apples, apricots, bananas, walnuts, cloves, cinnamon, and other spices that are added to the mezcal before the third distillation.
Don Amado Mezcal
Don Amado’s mezcaleros carefully handcraft all of their mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants’ treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native to the state of Oaxaca.
