Mezcal: A name taken from the Náhuatl word mexcalmetl. Mezcal is a Mestizo drink, a combination of the indigenous pulque and the distillation process introduced by the Spanish. It is made from the maguey (agave plant) that is native to México.

The crushed maguey is placed in 300-gallon wooden vats and water is added to make up five to ten percent of the mixture.

The tepache (mash) is left uncovered to ferment naturally with its own yeasts for four to 30 days. The Mezcal solids and liquids (tepache) are then transferred to a 25-gallon ceramic de olla (still). A copper sombrero (lid) is placed on top and the mix is slowly heated by wood fire, vaporized, and condensed. The resultant liquid is Mezcal, distinguished by its earthy, smoky flavor

Mezcal vs. Tequila: Mezcal is produced throughout México, however the mezcal we use in our restaurant is produced in the southern state of Oaxaca. Tequila is primarily produced in the northwestern state of Jalisco. Each spirit is derived from varieties of the agave plant, known to the natives as mexcalmetl. Mezcal can be made from five different agave varieties and is often distilled only once. Tequila can only

be made from Agave Tequiliana Weber, a type of blue agave. Tequila is double distilled and a few brands even boast triple distillation.
