About this mezcal
Macurichos Espadin Conejo (Rabbit) Pechuga is produced using 100% Maguey Espadin (Agave angustifolia) in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, México. The harvested agaves are cooked in an earthen oven, milled using a stone tahona mill, fermented in wooden vats, and distilled twice using clay pot stills. This Pechuga mezcal is distilled with rabbit (conejo) plus apple, cinnamon, banana, pineapple, orange, and wild fruit. This mezcal has notes of jasmine, cilantro, pink peppercorn, and roasted pineapple.
Led by maestro mezcalero Gonzalo Martinez, Mezcal Macurichos is dedicated to the protection of the cultural tradition and the agricultural heritage of agave within the iconic mezcal production community of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico. The family employs numerous neighbors and is one of the rare distillers the area who still produce using Ancestral methods, including clay pot stills. Gonzalo and his brothers cultivate their own diverse fields of agave – planting from seed and reforesting the diminishing wild agave populations.
