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 Espadin is cooks for 5 days in a lava-lined pit before being crushed with a stone mill (tahona), open-air fermented for 4 days, and double distilled in copper pot stills. The mezcal from Tlacolula, Oaxaca, is made with 100% espadin agaves and is bottled at 95 proof.

The Espadin is produced by Maestro Mezcalero Cutberto Santiago, a 3rd generation mezcal producer. Relying on tradition, Santiago makes premium mezcal employing the methods passed on to him by his forefathers. The agaves are carefully and slowly roasted so as not to get burnt. Santiago's trusty steed Aldo then crushes them into a pulp before they are finally distilled in small copper stills.
