MEXICO

(Country)

Mezcal is distilled alcoholic beverage. The word mezcal comes from Nahuatl mexcalli  which means "oven-cooked agave". Agaves or magueys are found mainly in many parts of Mexico and all the way down to the equator, though most mezcal is made in Central Mexico.

AGAVE

(Plant)

Studies shows that only 42 species of agave, plus their multiple varieties are used to make mescal. The distribution of agaves in Mexico that are used to make mescal is headed by Oaxaca with 18 species. The Espadín is the most widely cultivated species. The maguey easily adapts to adverse nutritional and climatic conditions and requires high light intensities.

THE MEDICINE

(Healing)

Drinking these mescals contributes with different chemical compounds to our bodies, and produces a direct effect on the brain signals, releasing neurotransmitters, which are biomolecules that transmit information between our neurons.

Effected neurotransmitters are Adrenaline & Dopamine.

SPIRITS

(Emotions)

Let's get in touch with our feelings.

Mescal taps in to our sense of freedom, sense of desire, sense of wisdom, sense of achievement. Long story short, it's really good for your friday drink-on.
