Bozal Pechuga Sacrificio Mezcal

On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because we at Bozal believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.


Bozal Pechuga Sacrificio Mezcal 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 P apalote.


Bozal Pechuga Sacrificio Mezcal Taste

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.
