Pulque: A Sacred Sip of Ancient Mexico

Embrace the rich heritage and sacred traditions of Mesoamerica with Pulque, an authentic and time-honored alcoholic beverage. Crafted from the fermented sap of the noble maguey (agave) plant, this milky elixir has been revered for millennia in the heart of central Mexico.

With a viscous, almost velvety consistency and a distinctive sour, yeast-like taste, Pulque offers a truly unique sensory experience. Each sip transports you back in time, conjuring visions of ancient rituals and the sacred customs that once surrounded this treasured drink.

Traditionally known as "metoctli" in the Classical Nahuatl language, Pulque was once reserved for the privileged classes of the Aztec Empire, a testament to its exalted status. After the Spanish conquest, this sacred nectar transcended its ceremonial roots, becoming a beloved and secular indulgence for the masses.

Today, Pulque stands as a living link to Mexico's illustrious past, a liquid embodiment of the country's deep-rooted cultural traditions. Whether savored during festive celebrations or enjoyed as a refreshing treat, this ancient agave wine promises to transport you on a journey through time, connecting you to the rich tapestry of Mesoamerican heritage with every sip.

Indulge in the captivating flavors and storied history of Pulque, and experience the profound essence of Mexico's enduring cultural legacy.

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.
