Mezcal is a mexican alcohol that is similar to tequila but unlike tequila which must be made from the blue agave, mezcal can be made from any of 8 approved varieties of the agave plant. It is common for mezcal bottles to have a worm , although the reason behind this is debated. One theory is that the worm serves to show the high proof and thereby quality of the mezcal. It is said that if the worm remains intact in the bottle the percentage of alcohol in the spirit is high enough to preserve the worm.
