We tell you 8 benefits of mezcal

Since then, the technique of distillation with clay pots and other instruments was already used. But, it was until the arrival of the Europeans and Spanish people to the country that they added the technique and mechanism for the distillation of beverage production.

This beverage is produced from the distillation of the maguey heart or agave, which is a Mexican plant with more than 200 species, and only between 12 and 15 maguey types are used for the production and elaboration of mezcal.
