Why does an "armadillo" represent Mezcólogo?
The armadillo represents sacred knowledge, great spiritual power, joy, firm decision-making, a positive yet strong character, and happiness. They are good agricultural producers, respecting plants, beings of other species, and are generous with families and communities. Armadillos need to live strong, emotional experiences.
In the Zapotec towns of Oaxaca, Mexico, the armadillo means "small with armor," and its scientific name is dasypodidae. The armadillo is named after the bony plates that protect its upper body. All other mammals with these characteristics are extinct today, making armadillos truly special.
In several Mexican states, they represent your nahual, the protective spirit acquired at birth, which will protect us for the rest of our lives according to the mysticism passed down from generation to generation.

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.
