Mezcal (“cooked agave”) is a distilled alcoholic beverage that is made from the wide array of agave plants found in the arid and dry lands of Mexico.  In contrast, tequila may only be designated as such if it is made with 100% blue agave (think scotch or whiskey). There is no general consensus on the number of different agave specie used in the production of mezcal, though there are several well-known and recognized varieties: blue agave, espadin, tobala, madrecuixe, dobodaan, and arroqueño.  Each variety of agave offers its own unique flavor profile, which is augmented by the length of time it is aged and the type of fruits and herbs used in the fermentation and distillation process.

Joven: unaged .

Reposado: 2-9 months
