About this mezcal

Montelobos Pechuga is made with agave Espadin. Before the third and final distillation, a turkey breast is suspended in the still and local fruits and spices are added to the distillate. Traditionally, a Pechuga mezcal like this is drunken at celebrations like weddings, quinceañeras, or other celebratory events.

Montelobos Mezcal

Montelobos has business ties to William Grant & Sons, the makers of scotch whisky. Iván Saldaña, who has a background in molecular plant biology, founded Montelobos Mezcal. Saldaña worked with two mezcal-producing families in Oaxaca and Puebla. The mezcal is popular inside Mexico and is also exported. Montelobos Mezcal is committed to sustainability and has pledged to never use wild agaves in their mezcal production.

In October 2019, Montelobos was acquired by Campari (Davide Campari-Milano SpA). The acquisition also included Ancho Reyes chili liqueur, for a combined total of $35.7 million USD.

A full pour on the terrace of Pitiona overlooking the skyline of Oaxaca City and Templo Santo Domingo de Guzmán.
Paired w/ my first Huitlacoche, Nopales sorbet and perhaps the best tortillas of my life.
