Tequila & Mezcal

Beyond shots, slammers and hangovers, Tequila is a remarkable drink which can express the nuances of its raw material arguably better than any other spirit on the planet. The key to its unique flavour is the spikily distinctive blue agave plant, which gives Tequila its trademark flavour combination of fruit, pepper and spice.

Mezcal is produced in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico, from several varieties of agave, but not blue agave. The pinas are cooked using wood-fired ovens, giving the spirit a pungent smokiness. Traditionally bottled with a worm (the original reason for this being unclear), mezcal uses the same terms as tequila: blanco, reposado and anejo.
