Description: Pechuga is a mezcal traditionally made as a celebration of harvest. Every producer has their own recipe that typically reflects the season, bounty and their personal taste. For our Pechuga, we put a batch of Fidencio Clásico back into the still and add fresh quince, pineapple, apple, banana and guava. We then hang a chicken breast (pechuga de pollo) inside of the still and make a third distillation.
