The depth of flavor in this mezcal is something so unique that you have to try it to understand. Its like a mole but its also like a mulled wine/hot toddy.
5 Sentidos Pechuga de Papalote is distilled by maestro mezcalero Delfino Tobón Mejía in the mountain valley of San Pablo Ameyaltepec. This Pechuga uses a once-distilled batch of wild harvested Papalote (A.Potatorum) as the base spirit. For the second distillation Delfino adds raw chicken, green apple, plátano macho, star anise, fennel, cinnamon, chocolate, and almonds, among other ingredients, to the boiling chamber of his custom-made three-plate stainless steel & copper still. This mezcal has aromas of anise and cinnamon. The palate has strong notes of baking spices and green apple.
“La Colección Mixteca” is a curated selection of small-batch agave spirits crafted in the rustic distilleries of the mountainous Mixteca region of Oaxaca and Puebla. Each bottling explores the maestro mezcalero’s interpretation of subjecting agave endemic to the region to peculiar production methods and styles that have largely fallen out of favor in modern times. A significant portion of sales from the collection will be used for palenque improvement projects.
