Pierde Almas is an artisan-made, small-batch mezcal produced in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca from 100% naturally fermented agave. Aside from being served in some of the finest restaurants in Mexico City Pierde Almas has also been chosen by the State Department Mexico for official use at state dinners of the highest level.
The Pierde Almas distillery, based in the village of San Baltazar Chichicapam and producing around 3500 litres a month has as its foremost concern a requirement to be a socially, culturally and environmentally responsible entity.
Using a double-distilled 100% Agave Espadin mezcal as the base in which the nine legendary botanicals of gin are macerated for 24 hours and distilled for a third time resulting in a Mezcal- Gin – a fusionary first!
To the mezcal are added the nine legendary botanicals being: Juniper berries, Coriander, Star Anise, Fennel Seed, Orange Peel, Cassia Bark, Angelica Root, Oris Root & Nutmeg.
Some are macerated with the Mezcal in the copper still pot for 24 hours, while others are hung in a large tea bag in the steam head, where they lend a delicate, floral finish.
