|The agave fields of Pierde Almas|
After distillation the spirit is bottled directly from the still, as Pierde Almas believes that mezcal should be enjoyed young, or "joven". Their mezcal is never aged in whiskey barrels because they interfere with the natural, traditional flavor of the spirit. Before the Pierde Almas Mezcals are ready to leave the distillery, they must receive the finishing touch: a hand-printed, recycled label. These delicate labels are made from non-polluting, lye and acid free, handmade paper derived from fibers indigenous to the region. This includes coyuche, jonote, pochote, pita, chichicastle, cornhusk, banana leaf, and of course, the maguey fibers left over from production.
Pierde Almas currently produces five types of mezcal derived from different species of agave, however only three of them are available in New York at this time: Pierde Almas Dobadaan, Pierde Almas Tobala Silvestre and Pierde Almas Tobaziche. Keep an eye out for the other two, Pierde Almas Espadin and Pierde Almas Mezcal de Pechuga, because we'll be carrying them as soon as they reach New York!
