The name Mestizo, is a perfect one-word description of how mezcal was created. Mestizo originates from the Latin mixticĭus, meaning mixed, and was used by the Spanish to refer to the mixing of the European and indigenous Mexican people. Mezcal is a fusion between the ancient beverage mexcalli, produced by the indigenous tribes of Mexico, and the alambique distillation process introduced to the Spanish by the Moors and subsequently brought by the Spanish to the indigenous civilization of the American colonies. Mestizo Mezcal is an ancient spirit that is unique because of its distinctive, complex and aromatic flavors. Come try some this Saturday as Jessica pours the light Joven and the smokier Reposed & Anejo and explains more about the process and qualities of this NEARLY Californian spirit.
