Monte Alban Mezcal is a truly authentic Mexican spirit. Made in Mexico and distilled from the Agave plant using centuries-old traditions and techniques, each bottle contains the famous Agave worm. Mezcal is tequila’s ‘big brother’. Almost 500 years ago Spanish conquistadors looking for a rum substitute began distilling an Aztec soft drink made from the Agave plant. They ended up with a premium spirit called mezcal. Spiced, smoky aromas with hints of chipotle, earth, oak and cigar leaves. Ash-like palate with sweet spices, agave, notes of paprika and wood resin.
