Islay is a long way from Oaxaca, Mexico but this combination was meant to be. Tequila’s boisterous brother, comparisons can be easily drawn between Mezcals relationship with the world of Tequila and Islay’s relationship with the world of Whisky. The agave used in Mezcal production is cooked underground with lava rocks and charcoal. It is this method that gives the spirit its characteristic smokiness. We recommend using any good Mezcal- Vida and Montelobos are two of our favourites.
50ml Mezcal (suffice as Vida or Montelobos)
20ml Lime Juice
6 drops of Tabasco (add to taste)
8 drops Worcestershire Sauce
125ml Tongue in Peat
Stir and Garnish with a Lime Wedge
