About this mezcal
Fidencio Pechuga is made with undiluted Fidencio Clásico, which is put back in the still for a third distillation and bottled, undiluted at 45%. Along with the Mezcal, the mezcalero adds a traditional mixture of fruit: apples, bananas, pineapple and guava. A whole chicken breast is skinned and washed to remove all fat, and it is hung from the cap of the still so that all of the vapors must pass over the raw chicken. The breast is said to soften the intensity and round out the flavor of the Mezcal. Pechuga is produced over a short time at the end of the summer. The fruit will have different expressions from year to year.
Fidencio Mezcal

Fidencio Mezcal embodies the tradition and creativity of Oaxaca. With four generations of knowledge and the finest estate grown agave, Fidencio is a unique mezcal that is pure agave. Using 100% Espadín agave let to mature at least 10 years. Fabrica de Amigo del Mezcal is the name of the distillery that produces Fidencio Mezcal. Fidencio Jiménez, the namesake for Fidencio Mezcal, started making mezcal over 100 years ago when he moved to Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. He began to live the life of a Mezcalero, learning from peers and by trial-and-error. He worked closely with his son Enrique to perfect their craft and to pass down their knowledge to the next generation. In those days, even the equipment was from the land: clay pots for fermentation, distillation & storage and river reeds for tubing.

Due to the artisinal nature of their mezcal, the ABV may vary slightly between batches.
