The word "Mezcal" comes from the Nahuatl language of the Aztecs and means "cooked agave".
The difference to tequila is the use of different types of agave, different origins within Mexico and different production.
The agave hearts are cooked for days in a covered earth pit.
The Mezcal Lajita is a classic earthy mezcal bottled by Licores Veracruz.
