TOTEM Release

We’ve been working on something really special, and are finally ready to share it with all of you!

Debuting on Saturday, October 19th: TOTEM.

The concept of TOTEM comes from a special spirit made in Oaxaca, Mexico called Pechuga. Pechuga is mezcal that is infused with fruits, nuts, herbs and spices through the distillation. On top of that, the mezcalero (or distiller), will hang a cut of meat in the still above the mash. This lends a roundness and a body to the final spirit, rather than any flavor from the actual meat. This precious spirit is usually reserved for special occasions and holidays.

To that effect, we set out to create a well balanced spirit that is to be held in the same regard. TOTEM is an expression consumed to invoke a prosperous harvest and good fortune: To celebrate life, death and everything in between. A spirit to fill your spirit with the spirit of the outdoors. Many ingredients in this special spirit were foraged, harvested and hunted right here in the Texas Hill Country.

Spirit Animal: Texas Hog
Spirit Base: Malted Barley, Wheat, Passion Fruit
Spirit Forage: Peaches, Dewberries, Pecans, Rosemary, Lavender, Bottle Brush, Smoked Chilies , Lemon and Grapefruit

The Ritual: Dip the rim of your copita (a traditional sipping cup) into a local honey. Add an ounce of TOTEM to the copita. Light a flame to awaken the spirit, extinguish the flame, and enjoy.

There are only 250 bottles being released of this unique spirit and once its gone, its gone. Join us on the 19th to celebrate it!
