Monte Alban Mezcal Tequila & Worm 700ml, 40%
Distilled and bottled in Mexico from the agave plant according to centuries-old tradition and technique. The authentic Mezcal with the worm in the bottle. A unique taste...and a strong appeal to today's trend-setting drinkers. The famous worm lives in the agave plant and are hand-harvested during the rainy summer season. They are stored in mezcal, drained and sorted, and placed in bottles near the end of the process. The worm is what makes mezcal unique, it is added as a reminder that it comes from the plant from which the alcohol is made.Pale straw hue in colour. Pungent spice, wood, and mineral aromas. A rounded, supple attack leads to a smooth, medium-bodied, exotically peppery finish. A sweetly pleasant and flavoursome spirit that blends brilliantly within a cocktail and shows very little burn. Drying, persistent finish, with warming complexity and an earthy array of flavors. Apocryphal legends note that the worm is an aphrodisiac that gives strength to anyone brave enough to gulp it down.
