In the village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca, the Banhez Cooperative is owned by 36 families and continues to grow. The families of farmers and mezcaleros work as one to make award winning mezcal as their ancestors have for generations.
Banhez Pechuga (“breast”) is comprised of 100% espadín mezcal redistilled with indigenous seasonal fruits and raw turkey breast hung over a copper still, imparting deliciously balanced flavors and complexity in the alcohol’s vapors before condensation takes place. Pechuga has been consumed across Oaxaca on special occasions for centuries. Banhez Pechuga is best enjoyed neat or over ice.
