About this mezcal
Pierde Almas Mezcal de Conejo is made by Maestro Mezcalero, Gregorio Velasco. This Mezcal is made in a similar fashion to a traditional Pechuga, with agave Espadin and triple-distillation in the presence of Heirloom fruit. Instead of hanging a chicken in the still, however, the saddle of a wild cotton tail rabbit is hung for vapors to pass through. The ABV ranges between 50% and 52%, depending on the conditions specific to each lot. This Mezcal has notes of orchard fruit and minty tarragon as well as the flavor the rabbit.
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.
