Mezcal curiosities

  • In the first place, the word comes from the Nahuatl “mexcalli”, which means “cooked maguey”, which was used as food, and fibers to wear in their homes and rituals.
  • There is a course in Mexico called “master mezcalier” to obtain a certification. The objective is to know how to serve mezcal, to know its origin and production process.
  • Meanwhile, mezcal does not cause the famous “hangover” because no chemical substances are used in its preparation. If you want to mix it, do it with natural or mineral water.
  • Depending on the woods used in its preparation, degree of alcohol, agave or distillation, mezcal has several flavors: fruits, honey, chocolate or citrus flavors.
