What is the difference between tequila and mezcal?

We invite both connoisseurs and casual drinkers to join us in our Lake Balboa store to learn more about all the best tequila and mezcal we have. We are here to make expert suggestions and guide you to the best types of tequila and mezcal that suit your person. Whether you need some help or not, you will find the perfect tequila or mezcal in our store. We stand by it.

So, what are the differences between these liquors? For those still reading, we will address some key points. There are three fundamental reasons why mezcal is different than tequila. Tequila and mezcal are produced in different states of Mexico. Tequila can only be made using Blue Agave, while mezcal can be made with 30 types of agave. The overall production is different, which causes tequila and mezcal to land on different flavor profiles.

Mezcal is defined as any agave-based liquor, making tequila a subset of mezcal. This means all tequilas are mezcal, and we carry over 700 kinds of both! To find out everything we have in stock, visit our store! You can also give us a call anytime during business hours.

The Wine and Liquor Depot in Lake Balboa carries a vast amount of craft beer brands that are more than suitable for all our customers. You might be thinking: What is craft beer? To be fair, there isn’t one sole definition for what craft beer is. Beer, much like wine, can be very subjective. A loose description of craft beer is a beer that is not brewed by a mega-brewery. Although it is not exactly a precise definition, that is usually what the phrase means when it is said.
