Mexico’s smoky, agave-based spirit is essentially the country’s analog to scotch in Scotland. Terroir-dependent and roasted, both scotch and mezcal have a lot to offer for true liquor aficionados in terms of variety and flavor. Whether you’re just stepping into the mezcal world or are a veteran fan, Penca offers up over 30 different bottles from different regions, including more esoteric bacanora and sotol. Let bartender Bryan Eichhorst guide you through Mexico’s different mezcal regions with a flight paired with orange and cinnamon.
