About this mezcal

Pierde Almas Coyote is made by maestro mezcalero, Agapito (Leo) Hernandez. This Mezcal is made from wild maguey Coyote (Agave americana), which generally takes 11 to 12 years to mature in this region. At 46% ABV, this wild agave has mineral flavors that evoke wet earth after a fresh rain.

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.

Best coyote I’ve had, maybe. Nose: Virginia tobacco and tanned leather, a bit smoke too. Earthy and mineral notes on the palate, but yet light. Charentais melon, papaya, lavender, chamomile, allspice. Great structure and integrated alcohol.
