For the uninitiated, both Mezcal and Tequila are made by using the juice of the agave plant, native to Mexico. Tequila must be a minimum of 51% agave, while Mezcal must use a minimum of 80% agave juice. Monte Alban, made from 100% agave, is the world's best-selling Mezcal and is produced with no added neutral spirits and no artificial additives like many other Mezcals. Famously coming with a Mezcal worm in each bottle, it is a brilliant amber colour with lovely hints of smoky agave and pineapple.
Spiced, smoky aromas with hints of chipotle, earth, oak and cigar leaves. Palate is sweet with spices, agave, notes of paprika and wood resin. Long, spicy finish with fragrant woods.
