Pierde Almas Tobala is made from wild maguey Tobala that take 12 years to mature in San Baltazar. Agapito Hernandez makes this Mezcal, which displays strong tones of the fresh agave plant. It is sweet with a long-lasting floral pattern. The aftertaste is also very green and fresh, like the smell of new vegetation after a spring rain.
Pierde Almas Mezcal
Behind each bottle of Pierde Almas is a time-honored recipe kept alive with painstaking care by the family patriarch in each successive generation. Their labels are hand-printed on 100% acid-free, handmade paper derived from fibers that are indigenous to the region and have been in use since pre-Columbian times. With their Wild Agave Reforestation Program, they are actively engaged in the re-forestation of wild species of Agave in those areas where their populations have been depleted. Pierde Almas begins each rainy season by inviting bartenders, chefs, restauranteurs, and journalists to join them for their annual wild Tobalá planting. Due to the artisinal nature of their mezcal, the ABV of each lot may vary slightly.
