About this mezcal
La Jicarita Pechuga is produced by Celso Martínez López in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. This pechuga was made with 100% Maguey Espadin (Agave angustifolia) using a secret family recipe that includes turkey, a variety of seasonal fruits, grains, nuts and local herbs. The agaves were cooked in a conical earth oven for 3-5 days. The cooked agaves were crushed by a horse-drawn Chilean stone mill, fermented naturally for 6-15 days, and double distilled in copper pots. The raw turkey is suspended in the still during the second distillation. This mezcal has notes of minerals, mango, fennel, and black pepper.

La Jicarita Mezcal
La Jicarita Mezcal is a product of Frijolotes LLC, a spirit import and worldwide distributing company. The company specializes in handcrafted small-batch mezcal produced with traditional methods passed down for generations. The company has worked the regulatory and logistical hurdles to assemble a supply chain into the heart of Mexico. The founders, Young Jung & Fred Baptista, met in the art department at San Francisco State University in 1997 and the idea for this company began in 2006 when the pair drove through Mexico for 30 days with a group of college friends. 11 years later the company began after a night of mezcal drinking with the mission to bring back a little piece of awesomeness from Mexico to share with everyone.
