About this mezcal

Gracias a Dios Pechuga is made with agave Espadin, wild turkey, and fresh fruit. Mezcalero Oscar Hernandez made this special release in honor of the Day of the Dead, which has a massive celebration in Oaxaca. After the party for the Day of the dead, Oscar used all of the fruit that people had brought to him to make this mezcal Pechuga. Before the second distillation, wild turkey meat and fresh fruit were added to the distillate to create this special festive mezcal.

Gracias a Dios Mezcal

Aside from a few special releases, Gracias a Dios is made in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. It is 100% artisanal, handmade with piñas from Espadín agave and other varieties, ground and fermented in their own palenque in Santiago Matatlán, and distilled in copper by maestro mezcalero Oscar Hernández Santiago.With a strong, aromatic and balanced flavor, this spirit is the product of a 4-generation family of maestros mezcaleros, who have traditionally kept the artisan processes of making this drink. They are continually innovating and partnering with other to create new releases.

Lot 02P 18-206 This is the Pechuga de Brisket made for Las Almas Rotas Mezcaleria in Dallas by the Gracias a Dios family. This is made with partially smoked Texas brisket as well as fresh Oaxaca fruits and flowers in the third distillation, using their Espadin as a base. This is rich, sweet, and savory. A lot of smoke. Flavors of beef brisket, bbq sauce, papaya, banana, and marigolds. Really interesting and well worth trying if you’re in the area.
