Born in Vienna in 1755 to the Holy Roman Emperor Francis I and the powerful Habsburg empress Maria Theresa, Marie Antoinette was promised to the future French king Louis XVI, and at the age of 15, was led down the aisle. With her high ranking position but few actual responsibilities, Marie Antoinette came to symbolize all of the excesses of the reviled French monarchy and became the target of a great deal of vicious gossip. After the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789, the royal family was forced to live under the supervision of revolutionary authorities. In 1793, the king was executed; then, Marie Antoinette was arrested and tried for trumped-up crimes against the French republic, and subsequently executed.

Del Maguey Pechuga mezcal. It is distilled with a whole, defatted chicken breast and rare, wild fruits that can only be harvested for a short period of time each year (plums, apples,red plaintains, pineapples), almonds, white rice. It is incredibly good—savory and fruity with an almost scotch-like smokiness. Very small production.
