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. For years, she served as the proud owner of this Mezcal line from Oaxaca and she shared her knowledge about the spirit through tastings and pairings, while creating alliances with other Mexican artisanal producers. On March 21, 2018, Cecelia formally announced that she was closing this brand's operations so that she could pursue her passion for Mexican wine. If you find a bottle of this mezcal in the US, it may be the last time you ever see it. Listen to Cecelia talk about her mezcal here: KCRW's Good Food - Cecilia Rios Murrieta: La Niña del Mezcal .

  • Overall:

Lot PECH-01 at 49.2%. Lots of anise and lavender aromas. One the palate are notes of dried peach and dried mango. Tastes of herbs, thyme, mint, anise, and lemongrass. Very herbal and not much meat. Not super viscous, but also not super thin. Nicely balanced.
