Monte Alban is a Mezcal and not Tequila. 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 has a pale straw hue accompanied by a pungent spice, wood and mineral aromas. A rounded, supple attack leads to a smooth, medium bodied with an exotic peppery finish. It shows very little burn and has a dry persistent finish offering great complexity, with an earthy array of flavours.
