Mezcal

Like Tequila, Mezcal is a spirit category protected by a Denomination of Origin/Appellation and by NOM and made in only seven states in Mexico.

Unlike Tequila, Mezcal is made from around 28 different species of agave, with Espadín being by far the most common. The agave for Mezcal is also harvested by hand by jimadores.

Mezcal production is still made in the traditional way by roasting the agave ‘piñas’ in a conical rock- lined pit underground covering up with banana leaves, cooking up after 5 days. When cooked, the piñas are crushed and transferred to large wood fermentation vats where ambient yeast converts the sugar to alcohol.

When the mezcalero determines it is ready for distillation, the mixture is transferred to traditional copper or clay alembiques, or stills, and heated over carefully controlled wood fires.
