Wikipedia SummaryMezcal is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from any type of agave. The word mezcal comes from Nahuatl mexcalli [meʃˈkalːi], which means 'oven-cooked agave', from metl [met͡ɬ] and ixcalli [iʃˈkalːi].Agaves or magueys are found mainly in many parts of Mexico and south to the equator, though most mezcal is made in Oaxaca. Spanish authorities, though, treated pulque and mezcal as separate products for regulatory purposes.Edward S. Curtis described in his seminal work The North American Indian the preparation and consumption of mezcal by the Mescalero Apache Indians: 'Another intoxicant, more effective than túlapai, is made from the mescal—not from the sap, according to the Mexican method, but from the cooked plant, which is placed in a heated pit and left until fermentation begins. It is then ground, mixed with water, roots added, and the whole boiled and set aside to complete fermentation. The Indians say its taste is sharp, like whiskey. A small quantity readily produces intoxication.' Varieties === Mezcal is made from over 30 agave species, varieties, and subvarieties, in contrast with tequila, which is made only with blue agave. Others state that it is there to prove that the mezcal is fit to drink, and still others state that the larva is there to impart flavor.The two types of mezcal are those made of 100% agave and those mixed with other ingredients, with at least 80% agave.
