One of the most legendary drinks in the world. Its mystique, created over hundreds of years, follows it to this day. Mezcal is traditionally drunk like Tequila: that is, with a lick of salt and a bite of lime.
Monte Alban Mezcal Con Gusano is as smooth and mellow as a Mexican sunset. Yet underneath you will discover a potency reminiscent of the ancient Spanish warriors who invented it. Traditionally every bottle of true Mezcal made in Oaxaca Province contains an agave worm. Since the agave worm inhabits only the species of cactus that Mezcal is made from, the agave worm signifies genuine Mezcal, made the traditional way. The worm isn’t there for looks. It is meant to be eaten. Because it is believed by many that within the worm lies the key. Some say it unlocks the door to a world of wonderous experiences. Others say it sets free a spirit of celebration. Still, others say that eating the worm locks in the enchantment and excitement of Mezcal. The worm then holds different keys for different people. And there’s only one way to see what yours will open.
