Tequila, Mezcal and Agave Spirits

Agave Spirits: The Next Big Thing in the Spirit World

Agave spirits are quickly becoming the next big thing in the spirit world. Made from the blue agave plant, agave spirits have a unique flavor profile that is both complex and delicious.

There are many different types of agave spirits, each with its own unique flavor profile. Tequila is the most well-known agave spirit, but there are also mezcal, raicilla, bacanora, and sotol.

Tequila is made from 100% blue agave that is grown in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Tequila can be either blanco (unaged), reposado (aged for 2-12 months), añejo (aged for 1-3 years), or extra añejo (aged for 3+ years).

Mezcal is made from agave that is grown in any part of Mexico other than Jalisco. Mezcal can be made from any type of agave, but the most common type of agave used to make mezcal is the Espadin agave. Mezcal can be either joven (unaged), reposado (aged for 2-12 months), añejo (aged for 1-3 years), or extra añejo (aged for 3+ years).

Raicilla is a type of mezcal that is made in the state of Jalisco. Raicilla is made from agave that is grown in the wild, and it is typically aged in oak barrels for at least 6 months.

Bacanora is a type of mezcal that is made in the state of Sonora. Bacanora is made from agave that is grown in the wild, and it is typically aged in oak barrels for at least 3 months.
