Tell me what mezcal you drink and I will tell you what agave it is made from


Collective Pisteando con Ciencia explains it to you with a very interesting talk.

MAZATLAN.- What’s up with agaves and mezcal? The collective Pisteando con Ciencia explains it to you with their talk “Tell me what mezcal you drink and I will tell you what agave it is made from”.

This talk was held with the aim of bringing people a bit of science and information about what agave is and what its fermentation process is since it is very common that we only consume the products, but never reflect on what is behind the famous spirit.

Guillermo Millán, Marine Biologist, an expert in agaves, and a member of the group, was the one who led the talk, explaining each of the 14 species of agaves that exist such as: Victoria, Tequilina, Vivípara, and Manso.

“The talk is more focused on the people who are here knowing what an agave is, what are the species from which mezcal, tequila and the different types of mezcal that exist are obtained. It is an informative talk but conducted in an entertaining way, it does not feel like you are being taught”.

Likewise, the history, process, and evolution of the agave were explained, by Carlos Lineo and what the word agave means: “noble”.

“It’s a bit of playing with that, so that people know the menu, what they are drinking and explaining a little where each of these plants is.”

During the event, he tested the attendees, asking them about their knowledge of this plant and about what they learned during the talk.

The talk took place at 7:30 p.m. at the Metl Mezcalería bar, which specializes in the sale of 11 different types of mezcal.
