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.

I don’t normally like Pechugas all that much but this one is one of my favorites. I get a strong smell and taste of manzanilla tea, and anise, with a really pleasant meatiness.

Lot 04-P at 49% ABV from 2012. I’ve heard a few bartenders call this batch the greatest Pechuga ever made, and I agree that it is very good, but I can’t say it’s THE BEST out there. This has lots and lots and lots of anise and leather notes on the nose. It’s surprisingly thin for a Pechuga and it’s not overly meaty. Tasting notes include red grapefruit, mango, and anise. It has a touch of spice but not too much heat. It’s definitely delicious.

Lot 04-P from 2012. Spearmint and anise on the nose. There are flavors of butterscotch and sour cherries. Light on the meat flavors with spices taking the forefront. Very nice and unique pechuga!
