What is agave, you might be asking? Well, for starters, agave is NOT a cactus; it is a succulent from the lily family. It is the heart, called the piña, of the agave plant that is harvested to make agave spirits. The piña is harvested when ripe, which typically takes 7-14 years, but for some agaves, it can take up to 20-40 years. Unlike grapes, for instance, once the heart is harvested, the plant dies. Join us to learn all about Agave, how it is grown and harvested to make Tequila and Mezcal and what you should be seeking.
