Don Mateo Pechuga Mezcal
Don Mateo de la Sierra // Michoacan, Mexico
Don Mateo Mezcals are made using artisanal and sustainable practices. Unusually for the brand's Pechuga expression, the cupreata agave is used rather than the more neutral espadín that others use. The matriarch of the family, Delia Vargas Vieyra, selects the ingredients for the Pechuga bottling which includes iguana, venison, and turkey along with a selection of dried fruits and nuts. All are hung from inside the still for the third distillation.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
