Alc/vol: 40% to 50%

Is a spirit made from the Blue Agave plant and other Agave varietales. The plant's bulb is steamed for 2 days, then crushed and pressed to extract the juice. The juice is fermented then distilled once to become Mescal. It is golden amber and is produced in Mexico. There is a small worm in the bottle that is said to be an aphrodisiac or hallucinogenic. This is not true nor does the worm contain 'Mescalline'. It is just a little caterpillar that feeds on Agave. Best enjoyed straight up, on the rocks, in mixed drinks, cocktails and tall drinks. Blends well with fruit juices, carbonated drinks, fruit liqueurs, coffee liqueurs and cacao liqueurs.
