Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, which is native to Mexico. This strong spirit is often between 38% and 46% and often enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a variety of cocktails. Tequila’s cousin, Mezcal, is produced in only one state of southern Mexico, also from the heart of the agave (but not blue agave). Mezcal’s deep smokiness comes from the slow roasting of the agave using wood-fired ovens. Mezcal and tequila share the same terminology for the different expressions: blanco, reposado and anejo.
