About this mezcal

Pierde Almas +9 Botanicals is made by Maestro Mezcalero, Gregorio Velasco. This Mezcal is the result of the merging of two great rivers in distilling history: Mezcal & Gin. Pierde Almas +9 Botanicals is made from world-class Espadin Mezcal that is infused with the nine classic botanicals of Gin. As a fine sipping agave gin, Pierde Almas +9 Botanicals unfolds delicately across the palate. There are hints of juniper blending with a complex bundle of spices.

 

Pierde Almas Mezcal

Behind each bottle of Pierde Almas is a time-honored recipe kept alive with painstaking care by the family patriarch in each successive generation. Their labels are hand-printed on 100% acid-free, handmade paper derived from fibers that are indigenous to the region and have been in use since pre-Columbian times. With their Wild Agave Reforestation Program, they are actively engaged in the re-forestation of wild species of Agave in those areas where their populations have been depleted. Pierde Almas begins each rainy season by inviting bartenders, chefs, restauranteurs, and journalists to join them for their annual wild Tobalá planting. Due to the artisinal nature of their mezcal, the ABV of each lot may vary slightly.

In May 2018, British multinational alcoholic beverages company Diageo purchased Pierde Almas Mezcal.

I love gin. To me this does not taste like gin, but it tastes like a really good herbal liqueur. The anise is up front but the other botanicals are there too in a really pleasant and tasty blend. This would make a great digestive.

Bursting with bright botanical flavors and undertones of roasted agave. A very unique release as this is a “mezcal gin” and captures the best of both spirits. I’d normally never consider sipping a gin, but this can be considered a gin and is an incrediblely complex and full-flavored spirit that should be sought out and enjoyed.

Lot 06-BOT. It’s kind of tough to rate this mezcal in any traditional fashion. The botanicals that are added during distillation really take over the flavor and aroma. I’m giving it four stars because it’s better than the only other agave distillate I’ve had that uses this style of gin botanicals. The other one is the Gracias a Dios Mezcal Gin. The aromas of this Pierde Almas are very similar to gin, with strong juniper and pine notes. The taste, however, is quite different from gin. There are still strong notes of juniper and lots of mint, but the rich taste of cooked agave seeps into every sip. If you’re in the mood to drink mezcal, this might not be the best choice, but it may be a good fit if you’re looking to try something creative and unique that’s made with agave.
