Don Amado Pechuga

Don Amado Pechuga is not a traditional Pechuga as no meat is used in the production. Instead, this vegan Pechuga is made with a variety of fruit and spices.

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.

Nose – Floral and salty. Not appealing.

Palate – Too much potpourri. Too perfumed. Not a big fan.

Lot 37. Rubbing alcohol on the nose. Very thin body, strange for being clay distilled. Wet cardboard, almond butter, dried apricot and chalk. Really hot for only 46%.

Woah! Smells like fresh donkey! Also, aromas of clay, potatoes, and wild apples. A bit of anise and wild apple palate. Thick! Very viscous. Short finish, but Big on the front end.
