Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla was a Criollo Catholic priest and leader of the Mexican War of Independence. The Father of the Nation suffered a gruesome death in 1811, being executed and decapitated, his head hung on exhibition. The Squadron of Death (Peloton de la Muerte) sought revenge for his death, flying "The Doliente Hidalgo", a banner that represented the army. The same banner adorns the bottles of Peloton de la Muerte Mezcal, which takes its inspiration from the Mexican hero.

3 expressions are in the Peloton de la Muerte lineup: the Criollo, Espadin, and Pechuga. The Criollo is crafted by Maestro Mezcalero Héctor Obregón in Mazatlán, Guerrero. It's made with the wild maguey criollo agaves, a cousin of the espadin that is native to the Guerrero region and is rarely used in production. After being slowly cooked, the agaves ferment in open-air vats for 5 days before being distilled in an Arabic and a Filipino-style still with a wood hat. It's a rare chance to taste the magic of this special type of agave. Bottled at 100.6 proof, it's an intensely fruity spirit with medium smoke notes.
