Frequently Asked Questions
These are some questions we often get about the website. If you have any other questions, please email us!
What is mezcal?
It’s more than smoky tequila! Traditionally, “mezcal” is any spirit distilled from agave. In that sense, tequila is a mezcal too. However, like tequila, mezcal as a product is regulated by the government of Mexico and must adhere to certain rules in order to be legally labeled as mezcal when bottled and sold.
What is Mezcal Reviews?
Mezcal Reviews is a review website specially focused on mezcal. You can also find spirits like bacanora, raicilla, and sotol on the Mezcal Reviews. Tequila bottles are not on Mezcal Reviews. If you want to search a tequila database, we recommend Tequila Matchmaker.
In addition to our large database of agave spirits, we also write frequently about our mezcal-related travels to Mexico and elsewhere on the Mezcal Reviews blog.

Does Mezcal Reviews make money?
Mezcal Reviews generates a small amount of income through Amazon Product Ads (mezcal related products) and direct Website Advertising. All income is used to pay for website infrastructure and it helps partially fund our yearly trip to Mexico where we dedicate our time to learning more about agave spirits. We share our learnings and experiences in Mexico through the Mezcal Review blog.
