TASTING NOTES

  • NOSE Pungent, with vinegary fruit shrub notes jumping out of the glass - a sharp sourness overlayed with sweet lemons, apples, and grapes. Sweetness is at the heart of this, with syrupy notes balanced by the sourness and delicate touches of spice.
  • PALATE A fruity palate, with fruit loaf soaked in unsweetened lemon and lime juice spread with sweet butter and dusted with icing sugar. As the fruitiness fades, minerality and spice emerge from the shadows.
  • FINISH Soft and lingering, with sweet, creamy notes slowly becoming spicy before fading away to a dry, apple skin end.
  • COMMENT A vegetal nose packed with agave flavor leads you into a sweet palate with dry edges that is easy-drinking and surprisingly moreish.

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.
