Yes, the Consejo Regulador del Tequila – sounds fancy and official because it is. And Mezcal's denominación de origen protects its heritage like a fiercely loving abuela guarding her secret recipes. But don't worry, we're not just droning on about regulations – we spice up history with tales of agave gods, valiant farmers, and undead worms that lead us to the truth: the worm is a myth in Tequila and a rarity in Mezcal.
