The flavor profile of Tequila is impacted by the region where the agave is grown, in the highlands or the lowlands. Due to differences in elevation and weather, the agave plants grown in each area create different tasting Tequilas.
Lowland agave has a shorter growing cycle, giving Tequila an earthy and herbaceous – often spicier- flavor.

Mezcal is made in 8 specific regions of Mexico: Oaxaca, Durango, Guanajuato, Guerrero, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas, Zacatecas, and Michoacan. The hearts (Piñas) are cooked in a cone-shaped earthen pit 10’ deep. Lined with volcanic rock the pit is fueled by mesquite wood and covered with a foot of earth. This underground “oven” smokes, cooks and
caramelizes the piña over a multi-day cooking process. The piñas are then crushed, fermented and distilled.
Mezcal is accompanied with sliced oranges, “sal de gusano’,” a blend of sea salt, toasted & ground agave worms and chile costeño.
