Don Mateo Mezcal Pechuga, Michoacan. Mexico
"Pechuga", the string, is a fascinating technique of suspending a chicken over the vat which collects the drippings. It sounds a little like voodoo, but it makes for some incredibly smooth and rich tasting Mezcals. Don Mateo's version is very, very complex, with a round texture and smoky flavor. Very nice sipping Mezcal.
