Our mission at Mezcal Pierde Almas is straightforward: to rescue and preserve the cultural heritage and singular history of the amazing elixir that is mezcal. We are first and foremost a socially, culturally and environmentally responsible entity based in San Francisco Tutla, Oaxaca, with our palenque (distillery) in the village of Chichicapam, Oaxaca. At Pierde Almas, we are obsessed with the strictest observance of a constellation of ancestral methods and lore – from pit-roasting our agaves up to a week to using the same design of copper pot still as that brought by the Spaniards – that have slowly evolved over the course of five centuries to produce one of the finest, hand crafted distilled spirits ever to appear upon the world stage.
The bouquet is lighter than our full proof Espadín, and slightly smoky with hints of aromatic wood and wild flowers. Its effect on the palate is of medium duration with a velvety texture and smooth, fresh tones of quince and anise in the aftertaste.
