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.

Aroma, herbal, lactic, low smoke. Alcohol quite hidden.
In mouth its silky, smoky, citric and slightly spicy. Short and dry finish. Not too complex.
Notes of citus, soap, earth and Pepsi. But in general quite shy. Floral palate with a chocolate after taste.
Basic and balanced.
Decent sipper for an inexpensive mezcal marketed and sold as a cocktail mixer. Very clean on the palate, this espadin has some soft smoke and floral aromas on the nose. As an espadin, it is right down the middle. It’s not incredibly complex, yet has consistent flavors of smoke and agave without tasting watered down.
