Tasting Notes

Due to its extraordinary biodiversity, much like the many species of agave used for mezcal production, Mexico is proudly home to at least 60 distinct varieties of corn each possessing unique characteristics that have proved vital to this ancient culture. It is difficult indeed to express just how important the contribution of these corn varieties to the local populations are but sensing a threat, longtime Oaxaca resident Jonathan Barbieri and his team at Pierde Almas embarked on a journey to draw attention to this vital issue. The result is Mexico's first commercial corn whiskey made from ancestral varieties of the grain. The team hopes that their efforts to push the families cultivating these grains will result in a sustainable future for these ancient products, securing their survival into the future. It is only fitting that the birthplace of corn should have its own whiskey. The first batches are un-aged, showcasing the intense flavor of the raw materials with notes that include vanilla bean, fresh masa, avocado leaf, white pepper, cotton and chalk.
