Monte Alban Mezcal is created from the agave cactus with each cactus is specifically chosen and only picked if it contains the Agave worm. This is a worm that inhabits certain types of agave cactus and is added to each bottle of Monte Alban. The Agave worm is not just there for looks either, it is there to be eaten. For centuries it has been considered a delicacy for the people of Mexico and each agave worm is seen as a key to the soul of the person who eats it.
Monte Alban is a beautifully smoky mezcal, well worth trying!
