Mezcal, a name taken from the Náhuatl word mexcalmetl, is a Mestizo drink, a combination of the indigenous pulque and the distillation process intruduced by the Spanish. It was Cortez who brought the technology of distillation to Mexico when he landed in 1519. The Moors had taught the Spaniards this art some 700 years earlier. It was just a short time before the indigenous peoples began to use their native maguey for producing mezcal with these new methods.
