Vago Elote Hijos de Aquilino Mezcal 750ML - The Vago Elote from Hijos de Aquilino Garcia continues the legacy of the renowned Mezcalero Aquilino Garcia Lopez.  His sons Temo and Mateo have dedicated their lives to learning the time-honored techniques and knowledge passed down by their father.

Tasting Notes

With aromas of smoky roasted corn and dry river stones, this Mezcal boasts a sweet body with hints of wood, honeycomb, green tropical fruit, and smoke. Distilled three times, the maestro adds a unique touch by incorporating roasted corn from the farm during the second to third distillation, making the roasted corn flavor prominent in the finish. Despite retaining a touch of the ruggedness typical of Vago Espadin, the smooth finish softens its edges.

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.
