I drank it as an adult to see what it was. Adding yeast to juice is a bad idea. It's a very popular bad idea. Juice that fucks you up is an ever expanding market. What specific law requires it to be malted, I don't know. Pour a little grain alcohol into a Pepsi, sell that and save a bunch of people stomach cramps, please.
Yeah! It’s just that Mezcal has been having a massive popularity swing recently. Running the tours I do, I find most of the non-Mexican people don’t know what it is. But the ones that do know, love to talk about how different it is from tequila. And how much better it is. Gin had its time, now it’s all about the Mescal.
