About this destilado de agave
Pal’alma Sonora – Lechuguilla is made with Agave bovicornuta by maestro mezcalero Fidel Lagarda Burgos in Milpillas, Sonora. The agave is cooked in an underground pit oven, milled by hand with mallets, fermented in rawhides, and distilled in a converted truck radiator.
Pal’alma (or Mezcalito Pal’alma) is curated by Erick Rodriguez. Erick also bottles under the brand Almamezcalera. Known by many as the Indiana Jones of Mezcal, Erick Rodriguez works with agave spirits producers from the 20+ states of Mexico. Anywhere he finds agave fields and a freshwater stream, there’s a good chance that someone is making mezcal nearby. He has a private tasting room in Mexico City, which we visited in 2017, and wrote about in our post Almamezcalera & Mezcalito Pal’alma.
