Over the course of more than four centuries, in rustic stills dotting the countryside of Southern Mexico, the lore of handcrafting fine Mezcal has been handed down from generation to generation. Behind each bottle of Pierde Almas is a time-honored recipe kept alive with humility and painstaking care. From the old masters – the Maestros Mezcaleros – Pierde Almas brings you rare, 100% artisan-made Mezcals, crafted using methods that have remained unchanged since the end of the 16th Century. Pierde Almas still bakes their Agave hearts for up to ten days in earthen ovens, and still mills them under a great stone wheel drawn by horses. Fermentation is slow, careful, and chemical free. Distillation takes place in a wood-fired, serpentine copper alembic whose design hasn’t changed appreciably since when the Moors occupied the Spanish Peninsula. Pierde Almas is a hyper-gourmet, artisan-made, small-batch mezcal produced in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca from 100% naturally fermented agave.
