Pierde Almas Espadin is made from agave Espadin that takes 8 to 10 years to mature. This Mezcal is made by maestro mezcalero Gregorio Velasco Luis is San Luis del Rio. Each bottling contains a slightly different ABV, but they all hover around 49%. Its flavor notes include a bit of smoke, pepper, and hints of chocolate with a long savory finish that holds strong in the mouth.
Behind each bottle of Pierde Almas is a time-honored recipe kept alive with painstaking care by the family patriarch in each successive generation. Their labels are hand-printed on 100% acid-free, handmade paper derived from fibers that are indigenous to the region and have been in use since pre-Columbian times.
With their Wild Agave Reforestation Program, they are actively engaged in the re-forestation of wild species of Agave in those areas where their populations have been depleted. Pierde Almas begins each rainy season by inviting bartenders, chefs, restauranteurs, and journalists to join them for their annual wild Tobalá planting. Due to the artisinal nature of their mezcal, the ABV of each lot may vary slightly.
