About this mezcal
Wild Shot Silver is made with agave Salmiana. They label this as “green” agave or agave Verde in some places in their marketing and on their bottles, while in other places they use the term Salmiana to describe the agave used in this mezcal. It is meant to be used as a mixer for tequila-style drinks. Mezcal PhD did a nice post on this mezcal, and he has some great Toby quotes: Is Wild Shot the Cuervo Gold of Mezcal?
Wild Shot Mezcal
Wild Shot's slogan is Blame it on the worm. Musician Toby Keith has this to say about his mezcal brand: "There is an agave worm in every true bottle. And, the worm is not there for the look, it is there to be eaten. It is believed that the worm will bring a special experience and every individual will feel something different." All Wild Shot mezcal is labeled as made from 100% green agave which is misleading because there is technically no agave species with this name. Wild Shot mezcal is actually produced with agave Salmiana in San Luis Potosi.
