small producers and the purists who enjoy their products speaking out against it.

First and foremost, of course, is Tequila which is made strictly from the single
species - Agave tequilana (Weber). Blue agave should only be grown, harvested,
cooked, distilled and bottled in central Mexico, specifically in the state of Jalisco
and certain designated areas of four other adjoining states. The agave is very
distinctive - a rich blue-green in color. It can, of course, be grown many other

Depending on the mezcal or tequila that's being made, the piña is baked in an
oven or crushed and juiced with a huge stone called a tahona. Maybe both. This
is where mezcal and tequila really start to differentiate from each other. Here's a
helpful saying for you: all tequila is mezcal, but not all mezcal is tequila. Tequila
is a form of mezcal, but with two distinctions: first, tequila must be made in the
