Oaxaca: Reunited!

Mezcal 4

And then the smashed stuff goes in here to ferment.  And then there are more steps like distillation.  And then, magically, there's mezcal.  Or something like that.

    So Is Mezcal the same or simalar to Tequila?? cuz when were in Pt of Vallerta we went of a tour of a Tequlia distillary, nothing modern times about it. It was exactly like the pic you shared here. We sample different flavers they made and learn the proper way to drink it so so can drink it all day and not get sick & drunk like most do. Learned about the agava syrup, which I love now over ant other syrups and Honey, due to the taste and lower sugar content. 2 main reasons we can’t wait to travel back to Mexico, besides the wonderful people & food! Of the beautiful country.
    Glad you r both back together , be safe!! xoxxoxo

      Hi, Robin! Yes – mezcal and tequila are made from the same plant. The only thing that’s different is the process. And in most places around the world, tequila is MUCH easier to find than mezcal, which is more-or-less exclusively a Oaxaca thing.
