Siete Misterios Pechuga, 750ML
Siete Misterios Pechuga is a rare release, and does not come from the Sola de Vega region like most of their other mezcal. This mezcal is made in small batches in Santiago Matatlan. It is hand-milled, and triple-distilled in a copper still. Before the third distillation, fruit and spices are added to the blend. A raw chicken breast is also suspended in the still and all of the vapor passes over the chicken before it is transferred into the final holding vessel. They produce less than 500 litres of this per year, so make sure to try it if you see it.
MEZCALERO: Celso Martinez, Don Mario Lopez
DISTILLATION: Triple distilled in Copper
VILLAGE: Santiago Matatlan
ALCOHOL: 47% ABV
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Siete Misterios was founded in 2010 with the intent of keeping traditional mezcal production at the forefront of the mezcal industry. They produce a wide range of mezcals that all highlight a single agave varietal. They are backed by those who are deeply saddened by the industrialization seen in most tequila and some low-grade mezcal, and they're doing everything in their power to keep the art of the mezcalero alive. The mezcaleros making their bottles change batch to batch, so one batch's bottles may taste entirely different from the next batch's bottles. This gives Siete Misterios a lot of variety in it's bottling as each batch is made by a different person, with agave grown in a slightly different micro-climate, and the mezcal may hold a slightly different ABV.
