Mezcal Versus Tequila – What’s your Choice?

With an ever-growing selection of mezcal and tequila on the market these days, Mexico’s most famous distilled spirits are more popular than ever. Countless nuances in flavors, colors, aromas and textures make sampling different brands and styles of mezcal and tequila an enchanting experience.
