About this mezcal

La Nina del Mezcal Pechuga is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. This mezcal is triple distilled in small copper pot stills. Before the third distillation, fresh herbs and fruit are added and a raw chicken breast is hung on the inside of the still. These additional elements give the mezcal a smooth and rich character.

La Niña del Mezcal

Cecilia Rios Murrieta is a freelance writer and founder of La Niña del Mezcal, a company that promotes awareness of artisan mezcal in order to preserve the traditional production processes and position it as a premium spirit in international markets. Her passion for mezcal led her to pursue certification as a Mezcalier, and later to establish one of the first blogs about Mezcal and the culture that surrounds it. Today, she is the proud owner of a Mezcal line from Oaxaca and she continues to share her knowledge about the spirit through tastings and pairings, while creating alliances with other Mexican artisanal producers and chefs to promote Mexican cultural and gastronomic heritage. La Nina del Mezcal can be hard to find as the company only imports a few cases into the US at a time.
