In 2018 two East London giants (Sager & Wilde and East London Liquor co) teamed up to create El Destildo. Their aim is to showcase the exceptional liquids that are made by hand in the Oaxaca region of Mexico. They have sourced eleven different mezcals and one Mexican rum.
El Destilado Pechuga is made with maguey Espadin that are fermented in stone with well water. It’s distilled in a filipino hybrid still (clay-wood-clay-copper). Before the final distillation, chicken and mole poblano are added to create a unique flavour and mouthfeel.
