MEZCAL DEFINITION: A distilate made from the charred hearts of the Agave desert plant. (The big difference in flavor profile between Tequila and Mezcal—beyond factors like aging, yeast, and the agave varietal(s) used—is that in mezcal, agave hearts are charred, deeply roasted in pits called “palenques,” which impart a smokiness to the flavor spectrum. Tequila is, by law, the product of just the Blue Weber varietal, while Mezcal can be made from upwards of 30 kinds of Agave—though the majority is made with the Espadin varietal)
