What is it about Mezcal that has giver such as avid following? What make it so unique? The beginning. Mezcal dates from the middle of the sixteenth century, when the Spanish conquistadors had conquered the New World. When they ran out of their traditional rum, the battle-scarred fighters looked for something else to celebrate with. The Aztecs near the mountain-top settlement of Monte Alban in Oaxaca had cultivated a certain species of agave cactus for juice which they would ferment into what they called pulque. The Spaniards, wanting something much more potent than pulque, began to experiment with the agave. First, they chopped it up to be cooked. The juice was then pressed out, fermented for several days, and finally distilled. The result was Mezcal. The Legend. Traditionally, every bottle of true Mezcal made in Oaxa
