About this mezcal

Tosba Pechuga de Borrego is a special batch of pechuga mezcal made with lamb (borrego) breast. It was created to celebrate the wedding between the founders of Tahona Mercado. Normally, mezcalero Edgar Gonzalez uses ingredients like wild pineapple, bananas, wild apples, and rice which are suspended in a cotton net in the the still for the third distillation, ensuring that all the vapors pass over the meat and condense into a delicious Mezcal de Pechuga.

This is not the regular pechuga release, for that bottle please see: Tosba Pechuga

Tosba Mezcal

Mezcal Tosba is a microbusiness founded by two cousins from San Cristóbal Lachirioag, Oaxaca, Mexico. While living in Silicon Valley, California in 1999, they were inspired and influenced by the entrepreneurialism that surrounded them. Concerned by the increasing migration from their home region of Cajonos-Villa Alta in the Sierra Juárez mountains, they decided to form a business that would rescue the disappearing mezcal production and bring economic opportunity to the area. Mezcal Tosba is created by using traditional, and what is now called sustainable, agricultural methods of harvesting and distillation passed down by generations of farmers and mezcaleros from the region of Cajonos-Villa Alta of the Sierra Juárez in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Pechuga de Borrego, Tahona Exclusive. Neck and neck with Rainy Lalocura Pechuga for the best ive ever had. Wonderful umami mixed with tropical fruits and fresh herbs. Everything is extremely well integrated. Not a hint of harshness. Finish isnt short, nor overlong…. Pops on the tongue like a fresh crudo or fruit salad. Not super meaty… just super awesome
