'PARA TODO MAL MEZCAL
PARA TODO BIEN TAMBIEN'
What is mezcal?
Mezcal (also: Mescal or Meskal) is a spirit distilled from mash made out of the steamed hearts of various species of agaves. The word mezcal comes from the Aztec language, the Nahuatl, and means “cooked agave”: mezcalli from metl = agave, ixcalli = cooked. Historically, mezcal is the general term of agave spirits made in Mexico.
What is tequila?
Tequila (Spanish pronunciation: [te kila]) is a distilled beverage only made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 kilometers (40 miles) northwest of Guadalajara, and the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.
The blue volcanic soil in the surrounding region is particularly well suited to the growing of the blue agave, and more then 300 million of the plants are harvested there each year. Blue agave tequila grows differently depending on the region. Blue agaves grown in the highlands region are larger in size and sweeter in aroma and taste. Blue agaves harvested in the lowlands, on the other hand, have a more herbaceous fragrance and flavor.
