Tasting Notes

Made in Zoyatla, Puebla by Marcelo Luna and his son Leonardo, this may be the most popular spirit in the Sentidos line and perhaps rightfully so. To make this extraordinary spirit Espadilla agaves are distilled once and then prior to the second distillation a homemade mole of chocolate, apples, bananas, chile mulato, chile ancho, cinnamon, cumin, peanuts, almonds and sesame seeds is added and distilled. A mind altering spirit that is truly unforgettable. * Please note batch #'s, abv and bottle #s may vary. Please inquire with us if you have any questions about which batch you will receive.

Staff Pick Notes

Pechuga-style mezcal is usually derived from a family recipe and involves redistilling an already prepared mezcal, typically with the inclusion of chicken or turkey breast (pechuga translates to "breast"). The poultry adds flavors by dripping condensation while the vapors in the still "cook" it as it hangs over the boiling chamber. Marcelo Luna does a riff on this style by adding a mole poblano made of chocolate, cumin, chile ancho, bananas, cloves, cinnamon and other spices, along with cooked chicken, to an already distilled batch of agave Espadilla. This creates a savory and spicy affair full of cayenne, cloves, ginger, dark chocolate, cooked elote, and tropical fruit. It's a supple and textured agave spirit that I wish was in my cabinet at all times.
