La Jicarita Pechuga Mezcal 750ml
La Jicarita Pechuga Mezcal is a unique and award-winning mezcal produced using a traditional Zapotec ritual. During the second distillation of Mezcal con Pechuga, a raw turkey is suspended over the copper alembic still. This process cooks the turkey, and as the vapors of the distill pass through the protein, an undeniable richness is added to the mezcal.
Local Oaxacans have enjoyed this unique celebratory mezcal during special occasions such as weddings, patron saint days, and birthdays. Each mezcalero has its recipe for producing this spirit. In homage to Zapotec rituals, La Jicarita's 4th generation Maestro Mezcalero has refined his centuries-old family recipe into this award-winning mezcal.
La Jicarita Pechuga Mezcal is produced using a secret family recipe that uses turkey, various seasonal fruits, grains, nuts, and local herbs. This is the first time this mezcal is available outside of Mexico, making it a rare and unique find.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
