In recent years we have seen a drastic increase in the popularity of Mezcal outside of Mexico. It has become a common spirit to find in liquor stores and bars. However there’s a lot of misconceptions that Mezcal is the same as tequila. While this is partially true, this is not the full truth. Mezcal is like tequila's older brother, it’s been around longer, and has even more expressions. There are many key differences which we will delve into later in this post.
Many people may associate tequila with nights out and having one or two too many shots. However, Tequila is so much more than that. Tequila can be enjoyed as a spirit all on its own as you would enjoy a glass of Scotch or Whiskey; you just need to know a thing or two about what to look for when buying. Tequila has a rich culture surrounding its production, history, and flavour.
