Bruxo is a project begun in 2010 by a group of friends who share a love of agave spirits and dedication to producing mezcal in the traditional way. Different maestros or mezcaleros create each of their expressions. This one is the work of Lucio Morales Lopez using espadín that is 7 – 8 years old upon harvest. It’s distilled twice in copper pot stills.
When we think of Pechuga, which means “breast,” we associate this style of mezcal with poultry. Bruxo’s Pechuga, the work of maestro Pablo Garcia, is an unusual vegetarian creation in which the roasted maguey heart is infused in the mezcal itself for a bolder agave flavor profile. The base spirit is a blend of espadín and wild (barril) varietals.
