Xicaru (ZEE-kah-roo) is the Zapotec word for beautiful. A traditionally produced mezcal made in Oaxaca, Mexico from 100% Agave espadin.

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

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. The mole negro is made from scratch over two days  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.
