Tequila may get all the attention from celebrities starting their own brands, but it’s Mezcal that is really on the move. There are, unfortunately (or fortunately, because you are getting a spirit in high demand at Artisanal Mezcals), built-in limits to the volume of spirit that the various Mezcal-producing states can provide. But for now, the rustic and rambunctious agave spirit is getting lots of traction in the US, with various small brands showing double- and triple-digit volume growth. You may have noticed that craft cocktail bartenders seem to love including Mezcal in multi-spirit drinks. Mexican themed bars are serving Mezcal in flights, as Margarita floats, and even as the basis for a smoky Margarita. Tequila-focused bars, worn out by the sameness among many big tequila brands, are stocking more Mezcals. Whether as a sipper, a shooter, a cocktail ingredient or a fine spirit, Mezcal is gaining more and more popularity, and the opportunity to be a pioneer is still possible.
Wait no more and order today, Mezcal is hot, is trendy and in high demand, but also a very scarce product. Get it while supplies last, very limited stock available.
