Product description

The Pechuga expresses a delicate balance in which the smokiness is softened noticeably by the protein and wild fruit. A rich mouthfeel offers flavors of roasted fruit, subtle minerality and a slight smokiness, finishing dry on the back of the palate. Bozal Pechuga is made with agave Cupreata as a limited release from Mazatlan, Guerrero. After the second distillation a cooked chicken marinates with locally sourced fruits, chiles, citrus fruits, raisins, cinnamon and clove. After the chicken has fully marinated, it’s added into the third and final distillation. AGAVE PAPALOTE The Cupreata agave, known as maguey Papalote in the state of Guerrero, grows wild on the mountain slopes of the Rio Balsas basin. The harvesting of this agave is extremely difficult due to the altitude of the steep slopes where it is found. Cupreata from Guerrero presents a profile starting with sweet floral notes, followed by the aroma of wet earth and subtle minerality, reminiscent of an approaching storm. Cupreata is a subspecies of Papalote. 100% Agave Cupreata - Papalote | Mazatlán, Guerrero | NOM-0472X Copper Pot Still
