Mezcal is most commonly known as “tequila’s smoky cousin,” which diminishes this unique spirit, and it’s far more complex taste than tequilas. Mezcal is in fact, a category of its own and Kimo Sabe ranks first of its class with its balanced and refined flavor.

To really distinguish mezcal from its agave spirit sibling, tequila, take a look at the myth busters below as we debunk the misconceptions about the differences between tequila and mezcal:

Myth #1: Mezcal is Mexican Moonshine

This myth is derived from politics and culture, not from the mezcal flavor. Kimo Sabe Mezcal eradicates this major myth by introducing its more rustic and refined flavor in this spirit category.

Myth #2: All Mezcals are Created Equally

All mezcals are not equal! Mezcal encompasses a very wide variety of flavors and production methods, it’s impossible to categorize them universally. From tiny single-source batches to heavily industrialized brands, mezcal is incredibly diverse in quality and flavor.

Myth #3: Mezcal is Too Smokey

Not true! Depending on the locale and unique methodology of the spirit house, mezcals can embody a plethora of flavor profiles. The newer mezcal methodology is very different from the traditional approach. Kimo Sabe’s take on mezcal is a “new school” style, which blends traditional ways with modern technology resulting in an innovative flavor profile that’s unmistakable.
