Don Amado Pechuga, 750ML
Don Amado Pechuga is a vegan “Pechuga” similar to those produced by Wahaka and a few other brands. Traditionally, Pechuga mezcal is made by hanging a chicken breast in the still during the third distillation. This vegan Pechuga, however, uses a combination of locally-sourced wild apples, apricots, bananas, walnuts, cloves, cinnamon, and other spices that are added to the mezcal before the third distillation.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Don Amado’s mezcaleros carefully handcraft all of their mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants’ treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native to the state of Oaxaca.
