“Islay is a long way from Oaxaca, Mexico but this combination was meant to be.
We at Tongue in Peat adore Mezcal. Tequila’s boisterous brother, comparisons can be easily drawn between Mezcals relationship with the world of Tequila and Islay’s relationship with the world of Whisky.
They do things a little different.
The agave used in Mezcal production is cooked underground with lava rocks and charcoal. It is this method that gives the spirit its characteristic smokiness.
We recommend using any good Mezcal for this drink. Vida and Montelobos two of our favourites producers.”
