From the bartender’s corner – Mezcal #6: Scorpion Reposado
Scorpion mezcals are from Oaxaca and like many other mezcals is made from espadin agave and double distilled in copper stills. This being a Reposado, it is aged. In this particular case in French Oaks.
Here is an interesting fact. You know how certain mezcals will have a worm inside it? (BTW, tequilas NEVER have a worm – that belief is a myth). Well, this company’s slogan is “worm is for the wimps”.
They actually have a scorpion at the bottom of the drink. Every single bottle!!! (this is somewhat for marketing – it has no other value).
