Mezcal Los Danzantes de Pechuga: This mezcal has an #interesting #distillation method: it's triple distilled in #copper stills, the last of which uses a #recipe of fruit and spices. A final step is to 'ink' the spirit with #cochineal, which is why it's #red. #Citrus flavors with notes of #tamarind make it #one of the #most sought after mezcal. #mescal #luxury tequila #tequila #spirits
