Pierde Almas Ancestral Corn Whiskey
Pierde Almas // Oaxaca, Mexico
Pierde Almas is best known for their mezcals. This is their first whiskey, twice distilled from ancestral corn varieties from Oaxaca, Mexico supplemented by 6% malted barley. This first release is unaged, but additional stocks are in barrel.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"Pierde Almas Ancestral Corn Whiskey is unlike anything else on the market. Tasted blind, one might think it's a mezcal. It shares a similar rustic quality and intense minerality. It's wonderfully complex, layering notes of slate, pepper, and fruit atop its grain base. This spirit is not just unusual; it's a revelation for how good white whiskey can be."
