About this mezcal
Pierde Almas Mezcal de Pechuga is made by Maestro Mezcalero, Gregorio Velasco. This Mezcal uses agave Espadin that is triple-distilled in the presence of Heirloom fruit and the breast of a wild turkey. The spirit generally ranges between 50% and 51% ABV. Every year in the month of November, Pierde Almas produces an extremely limited offering of Mezcals de Pechuga. This beautiful Mezcal is rich in flavor of old forests and wild fruit trees. The flavor lingers on long after the Mezcal itself has been swallowed.
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.
