Xicaru - the Zapotec word for beautiful - reflects our desire to share a traditionally produced mezcal that is truly beautiful, approachable and distinct. We make small batches of Xicaru Mezcal using time-honored methods in Matatlán, Oaxaca.

We celebrate the anniversary of Xicaru by combining two traditions: pechuga, a mezcal traditionally reserved for special occasions, and mole negro, the iconic Oaxacan sauce. We are proud of the exciting result: Xicaru Pechuga Mole Mezcal.

Xicaru Pechuga Mole Mezcal is made by hand. The maguey is cooked in an underground stone oven, tahona-mashed, fermented in open-air pine vats, and distilled over a wood fire. Our mole negro is made from scratch over two days at our palenque, using molcajete- ground chilis, Oaxacan chocolate and other fresh ingredients. It is added to the still along with dressed chickens for the final distillation.

Introducing chicken and savory-sweet mole negro to the vegetal and smoky characteristics of traditional mezcal results in a remarkably multifaceted flavor and a rich mouthfeel. The finish is delightful, long and lasting.

    I bought this for my wife because she is the Mezcal / Tequila drinker. She likes it very much, and will definitely buy it again.
