Mezcal Peloton 1L
The meaning of Pelotón de la Muerte translates to “the Squadron of Death”. The flag itself represented the insurgent army called “The Squadron of Death” who fought for Father Miguel Hidalgo who was executed by a firing squad in 1811, decapitated and taken to the Alhondiga de las Granaditas, in Guanajuato, where it was hung on exhibition for leading the revolution.
