What is Mezcal and How Does it Differ from Tequila?

Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from the agave plant, native to Mexico. While tequila, its more famous cousin, can only be made from blue agave, mezcal boasts a diversity in production, utilizing over 30 types of agave, including Espadin and the rare Cuishe. This variety allows for a broader spectrum of flavors, making mezcal a rich and complex spirit. Learn more about the unique characteristics of mezcal on our Mezcal vs. Tequila page.
