Mezcal news!

 

What is Mezcal?

Meet Mezcal, Tequila's smoky cousin

 

Video: the fight of Mezcal tradition!

Opposition to NOM 199. Here’s a great quote, loose translation “The fact that a major rock band like the Rolling Stones now say that they prefer mezcal to tequila is proof that we have made progress against all the obstacles”

The rise of Mezcal.

Great for cocktails, better for Oaxaca. That fancy new mezcal in your favorite bar is changing everything in the villages of Oaxaca.

Retasting Mezcal.

The mixture is the basis for the mezcal and each maestro mezcalero differs a bit on methodology but there are constant debates on what to keep from each step of the distillation process. It can get rather religious at times but Judah pointed out that it’s essential to the process, it’s really where you make the cuts, rather than a question of whether. He also noted that many people blend after distilling from garafones of each portion so that they can narrow the target flavor. Others will make adjustments just to reduce acid levels so that they can ensure that the CRM will certify them.
