Banhez Mezcal Artesanal Pechuga (750 ml)

About This Item

In the village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca, the Banhez Cooperative is owned by 36 families and continues to grow. The families of farmers and mezcaleros work as one to make award winning mezcal as their ancestors have for generations.

Banhez Mezcals are produced in Ejutla by a family and farmer owned Cooperative. The Co-op members work together to make sustainable, fair trade Mezcal as their ancestors have done for generations. From sowing agave seeds to bottling each expression, each step in the process is completed by a member of the Co-op - a member of the Banhez family.

Banhez Pechuga de Pavo is comprised of 100% Espadín distilled with indigenous seasonal fruits and raw turkey breast placed in a copper still outfitted with a refrescadora. This unique single distillation technique imparts deliciously balanced fruit aromas, while preserving the agave’s roasted flavors. The addition of the turkey, along with being culturally significant, adds a spectacular textural complexity into this special spirit. Versions of “distilados con pechuga” has been consumed across Oaxaca on special occasions for centuries.
