Mezcal = 400 PPM
Tequila = 500 PPM
Bourbon/Whiskey = 1000 PPM
MEZCAL – Can use up to 42 types of agave plants, many processing choices and must be made with 100% agave.
TEQUILA – Can only use one agave type, one processing style, and can be made with only 51% agave.
Mezcal, like a multi-color picture,
has more ways to create complex depth of flavor than the black and white picture of tequila.
