Morro Mezcal 750ML
Morro Mezcal 750ML
Morro Mezcal 750ML - The process begins with carefully selecting mature, single-origin agaves. Master mezcalero Juan Lopez Olivera combines his inherited knowledge with a passion for innovation to produce the highest quality and best-tasting spirits.
They use traditional, small-batch artisanal methods, including earthen ovens, open-air wooden fermentation vessels, and small wood-fired copper stills. Morro distills its mezcal to proof, meaning they never dilute it with water, as they believe this greatly impacts the quality of the spirit. They rely solely on wild fermentation and never add artificial accelerators such as sugars or yeasts.
The mezcal is made with only one ingredient: our agave, complemented with local mountain spring water used in fermentation.
- On the nose, this mezcal has aromas of fresh lime and a subtle sharpness of white cheddar.
- On the palate, it has a medium-plus viscosity and a taste of lime Life Saver candy. There is a slight hint of kerosene in the background, which is not overpowering. The flavor also has notes of cooked and crisped cheddar, reminiscent of the bits left in a frying pan after making a grilled cheese. There is a touch of salinity similar to a martini olive and a medium, clean smoke flavor that runs throughout.

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.
