This exceptional Mezcal frees the spirit and reveals the soul. It's an experience of salvation when one opens their soul to the extraordinary.
SALVACIÓN's home, Oaxaca, is a place like no other. Its where hard work is respected, craftsmanship is celebrated, and tradition is cherished. The pride they take in their roots shines through in every sip of SALVACIÓN.
The journey begins with hand-harvested agaves, roasted in the earth at a 150-year-old distillery. They're crushed by a horse-drawn stone wheel and distilled in traditional clay ovens, fueled by wood-burning fires. Using a 6th generation recipe, they carefully double-distill SALVACIÓN. The master distiller meticulously samples each tiny batch before filling each hand-labeled, hand-blown bottle. It takes over a month to go from harvest to the SALVACIÓN experience.
SALVACIÓN Pechuga isn't just any mezcal recipe. It's a unique creation made using espadín agave, which takes 6-12 years to mature. The production of Pechuga mezcal happens exclusively in the fall due to its special ingredients. They use around 20 creole fruits like honey-pineapples, crabapples, apricots, anise, Castille bananas, and apples. Additionally, they add cinnamon, almonds, raisins, rice (used as a filter), and the breast of a female wild turkey (known for its softer and more flavorful meat, compared to males).
Tasting Notes: All this hard work culminates in an exceptional mezcal with a balanced aroma of citrus, fruits, and anise. SALVACIÓN Pechuga is known for its delightful smoky flavor and ends with a delicate, sweet finish.
