Tequila's forefather is making more of a name for itself. Mezcal is a Mexican spirit named after the Aztec term for "oven-cooked agave". Mainly produced in the state of Oaxaca, it has been made the same traditional way for over 400 years. Like tequila, it's distilled from the agave plant, which was venerated by pre-Columbian civilisations for its food-related and therapeutic uses and qualities. This Mexican agave eau de vie will tickle your taste buds and win you over completely.
