Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from agave that means “oven-cooked agave” in Nahuatl, the Aztec language. Mezcal is the godfather to tequila, and dates back hundreds of years. Because of it’s distillation process, it embodies a smokier flavor and is named by the type of agave plant that was used such as Espandin and Tobaziche. We are proud to feature 20 varieties of the spirit that made Oaxaca famous, including artisanal, small-batch varieties.
Tequila, Mezcal’s relative, also comes from the agave plant. While mezcal can be made with a variety of agave plants, tequila is made with only 100% blue agave. Like mezcal, we are proud to carry 20 varieties that stand alone or pair well in cocktails.
