A rare and unique expression of agave Criollo.
Peloton de la Muerte is another Mezcal-icious brainchild of Danny Mena. He started a single boutique bar in 2005 — the only establishment focused exclusively on artisanal Mezcal in Mexico City. In 2007, they opened a similar bar in New York called "Hecho en Dumbo." From there it was a small step to acquiring and independently bottling the Mexican Spirits they love.
Pelotón de la Meurte is a sub-brand of his Mezcals de Leyenda. The collection of artisanal Mezcals from Oaxaca and Guerrero comes from the first Mezcaleria in the world: La botica in Mexico City. The flag that you see on the label holds a very special meaning: it’s the banner that represented the army called The Squadron of Death (or, Peloton de la Muerte) that seeked vengeance for Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the leader of the Mexican War of Independence.
Pelotón de la Muerte Criollo Mezcal is a rare expression that managed to capture the beauty of agave Criollo that’s not usually used in Mezcals. Coming from Guerrero, this sipper releases intense aromas of ripe cherries and candied apples that lead to the juicy and unique palate with fresh pine and medium smoke, rounded by a long delicate finish.
