Maguey arroqueño, scientifically known as Agave americana var. oaxacensis, is a magnificent wild plant that requires over 25 years to reach maturity. It holds a special place in the world of mezcal as it is the genetic mother of the widely used Maguey espadin, which is renowned for its versatility and popularity in mezcal production.

The arroqueño maguey, carefully selected for its maturity, is harvested and processed with great care.

The choice to offer their mezcal in 375 ml bottles demonstrates their commitment to making premium mezcal more accessible to a broader audience, ensuring that everyone can experience the exquisite flavors and craftsmanship of their spirits.
It's important to note that the growing popularity of mezcal raises concerns about the conservation of the wild Maguey arroqueño. Given its lengthy maturation period, there is a risk of it becoming increasingly scarce. However, efforts are being made within the Mezcal industry to promote sustainability, including replanting arroqueño in the Oaxacan hills to replace those harvested each year.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
