Introducing El Mero Mero Tepextate, a premium mezcal made with wild agave Tepextate that takes 20-22 years to reach maturity. This rare and exclusive mezcal is made using traditional methods. The agave is crushed by tahona, fermented in Encino Oak tubs, and distilled in copper, producing a smooth and refined taste.

The rough conditions in the region where the agave grows contribute to its high sugar content, which can translate to differences in flavor and profile. Typical batches of El Mero Mero Tepextate range from 125-200 bottles, making it a rare and highly sought-after mezcal.

El Mero Mero is a brand deeply committed to quality and sustainability. Mezcalero Justino Garcia Cruz oversees all production, and the brand's bottle label is designed by Carlos Zerpa, one of the most important Latin American contemporary artists. The surrounding mezcaleros are also starting to cultivate agave Tobala and Tepextate, promoting more sustainable production practices.

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.
