La Pierde Almas Pechuga Mezcal
Young, triple-distilled, handcrafted mezcal made of 100% agave (Agave rodocantha or Agave angostafolia). This crystalline distillation ranges between 49% and 51% alcohol/volume, depending on the conditions specific to each lot. Every year, in the month of November, Pierde Almas produces an extremely limited offering of mezcals avocados: mezcals flavored with an infusion of heirloom ( criolla ) fruit, almonds, anise, and, in this case, the breast of a turkey. It’s as if the ghost of an old forest of wild fruit trees were to occupy the senses, lingering long after the mezcal itself has been swallowed.
At Pierde Almas, our uncompromising tenet, when it comes to production, is that the entire process must scrupulously adhere to a natural – 100% chemical free – and traditional methodology.
We also believe that mezcal must be consumed joven. That is to say, Pierde Almas is never aged in whiskey barrels, as these tend to impart extraneous flavors and impose an aesthetic that has nothing to do with mezcal’s historic and cultural context.
Presently, the Pierde Almas distillery in San Baltazar Chichicapam has a monthly output of 2000 liters. Production capacity is projected to reach 5000 liters within three to five years, depending upon demand.
