About this mezcal

Pierde Almas Maguey de Lumbre is made with the rare wild agave Lumbre. Though some sources identify this agave as a Karwinskii, the majority of the mezcal community claims this agave as a unique species. Agave Lumbre is mostly used in Ensamble blends, which makes this 100% Lumbre a unique mezcal.

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.

Not one you see everyday but Barrio in Seattle had a nearly full bottle as of this writing. Sharp lemon zest. Round flavors. Espadin vibes. Soft caramel sugar mid-palate. Quick finish. The label was quite worn and they don’t list a mezcalero or even a production town.

Lot: 01-L. Light citrus and fruit on the nose, plus the ubiquitous aroma of Oaxacan mezcal. Sweet, roasted agave, a hint of cedar wood (sometimes fresh oregano), and other non-descript flavors in the middle. A short and sweet finish, with barely perceivable smoke. The bottom line is this mezcal is pleasant, and good, though not remarkable.

Former brand owner Jonathan Barbieri says Maguey de Lumbre resembles Espadin, but pencas are thinner, and have a reddish tint. I think Pierde Almas Mezcal de Lumbre also tastes like mezcal made from Espadin. I gave it four stars, but I feel it’s closer to three and a half.
