So, all tequilas are mezcals, mezcal is a mezcal, but not all mezcals are tequila.  Yeah, that confused us too, initially.

While tequila is made from blue agave, mezcal is made from 30 varieties of agave – specifically the pina – or heart of the agave plant. Mezcal is classified as an alcoholic beverage made from agave that is native to Mexico. It’s made primarily in Oaxaca, but occasionally made in one of the other 6 locations that have been approved.
