Mezcal Pierde Almas Botanica +9
Mezcal Pierde Almas // Oaxaca, Mexico
The Pierde Almas +9 is a unique, groundbreaking release that is both a mezcal and a gin. The double-distilled mezcal base goes through a third distillation with gin botanicals. Some of the nine botanicals are macerated with the mezcal in a copper alembic still for 24 hours, while others are hung in a tea bag in the steam head for additional depth of flavor.
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.
"A forest of pine needles and charred wood on the nose, with hints of holiday spice and orange peel. Soft and sweet on entry despite its high proof, developing into a velvety, herbaceous palate with nutmeg, ginger and smoke. The long and dry finish is floral and delicate, with hints of honey, anise and smoke."
