Mezcal fans love to ponder how agave varietals can influence their favorite spirit, but rarely do they discuss the role of the still. Join William Scanlan of Heavy Métl Premium Imports, LLC (Rey Campero, Mezcal Real Minero,Mezcalosfera de Mezcaloteca,  Uruapan Charanda, Mezcal Palomas Mensajeras, Chacolo, Caballito Cerrero, and Clande Sotol) for a deep dive into the array of different stills and distillation methods used in the world of Mezcal, and how those stills and methods achieve different effects in the finished product. Taste through some single agave varietals applied to everything from copper pots, to clay tops, to wooden topped pots. This session is for all levels of knowledge, from newbie to wanna-be-Mezcalero.
