Pal’alma De Castilla is an extraordinarily unique mezcal, skillfully crafted by the esteemed distiller Jorge Torres in Santiago, Nuevo León. The mezcal is produced using Agave americana, commonly known as "De Castilla" in this region, known for its ability to impart a distinct flavor profile to the final product.

What truly sets Pal’alma De Castilla apart is the unconventional use of pulque, a traditional Mexican alcoholic drink made from the fermented sap of the agave plant. In this colder climate, pulque is used in abundant quantities during fermentation in place of water. This final mix consists of approximately 40% roasted agave fiber and a generous 60% pulque. This unusual method of fermentation lends a strikingly distinctive aroma and flavor to the mezcal, setting it apart from others in the category.

Pal’alma, also referred to as Mezcalito Pal’alma, is brought to the world stage by Erick Rodriguez, who also bottles under the renowned Almamezcalera brand. Known fondly as the "Indiana Jones of Mezcal", Erick works closely with agave spirit producers across the 20+ states of Mexico, showcasing the rich diversity and craftsmanship inherent in the country's mezcal production.

Erick's keen eye for quality and authenticity takes him wherever agave fields and freshwater streams coexist, as these are sure signs of local mezcal production. His journey to seek out the very best leads him to remarkable finds like Pal’alma De Castilla. This exceptional mezcal is a testament to the mastery of traditional distillation methods, the versatility of the Agave americana, and the innovative use of pulque, providing mezcal enthusiasts with a truly unique tasting experience.

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.
