About Peloton de la Muerte Pechuga Mezcal

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 latter is a unique mezcal that comes from the Obregón family. Its recipe has been passed down through generations of mezcaleros. It's crafted with a field blend of wild Guerrero agaves (maguey criollo y ancho) that are roasted and distilled together in Mazatlán, Guerrero. What sets this artisanal mezcal apart are the aromatics that are added during the second distillation. These botanicals are hung from the arabic still, infusing the spirit with rich aromas. Oaxacan pechugas will usually have a chicken breast hanging on the still, but this vegan version replaces the chicken with oranges, mandarins, mint, anise, and cinnamon, among others. The unique mezcal is bottled at 90.2 proof.

About Mezcal

Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from roasted agave plants between two days and two weeks, which gives it a distinct smokey flavor.
What scotch is for whisk(e)y, mezcal is for tequila.


It can be made from different types of agave in different parts of Mexico, but most of it (60%) comes from the state of Oaxaca. Mezcal offers a large diversity of flavor profiles and ranges between 40 and 55% ABV.
