"Pelotón de la Muerte Pechuga is produced in the state of Guerrero by mezcalero Rodolfo Obregón. It is produced using a field blend of wild Guerrero agaves: Maguey Criollo y Ancho (A. Angustifolia Rubescens y A. Cupreata). The agaves are roasted and distilled together. Next, aromatics hung from the arabic still on 2nd distillation. This Obregón family recipe is a vegan pechuga; no meat is added. This mezcal has herbaceous flavors along with notes of wild agave.
The Pelotón de la Muerte label is the flag The Doliente Hidalgo, a banner that represented the insurgent army call “The squadron of death”, which sought revenge for the murder of the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla. The red in the flag represents the blood of the leader, the black cross represents the mourning for the priest Dolores, and the bones honor his remains. Pelotón de la Muerte is from Mezcales de Leyenda and geared towards the cocktail scene." from Mezcal Reviews
