Pechuga is a celebratory style of mezcal made from agave Espadín. It is the only El Jolgorio mezcal that does not take its name from the species of agave used in production. To make this mezcal, local fruits, nuts, herbs, and spices are added to the still on the second distillation, along with a whole, raw turkey that is hung inside the still cap. Culturally, mezcal Pechuga has great significance, made only for very special occasions, such as weddings, baptisms, or holidays, and as such, made with a great deal of love and care in order to capture the feeling of the mezcalero. Today, due to their popularity in the marketplace, many brands are producing Pechuga-style mezcals using a wide range of ingredients.
