What is mezcal?
Mezcal and tequila are not the same
Tequila is a mezcal, but not all mezcales are tequilas. Tequila is made from the blue agave plant, while mezcal can be made from any type of agave.
Tequila is also required to be made in certain regions of Mexico, while mezcal can be made anywhere in the country. Finally, tequila must be aged in oak barrels for at least two months, while mezcal does not have to be aged.
