MEZCAL IN THE U.S

I know it, you know it, the world is knowing it. Mezcal in the world is no longer a fad but a reality that has arrived to stay.

More and more countries are taking the chance and discovering it, and not only that, but they are asking for it and repeating it. It is no longer astonishing to see a shot of mezcal in a bar in Central America, bottles for sale in liquor stores in the United States and even mezcalerías such as San Pedrito in regions like Barcelona.

Today mezcal is on everyone’s lips and if we talk about the United States, the figures are completely mind-blowing. In this blog we share with you some facts in case you are curious, you have a homework to do and urgently need some data to pass the course or simply we are your 3 a.m. search and you don’t know how you got here.

Born buyers

One can know many things, but did you know that the United States is the main world buyer of mezcal? Yes! Oaxaca, one of the biggest mezcal producers as you may well be aware, sells a production of almost 2.6 million liters of mezcal to Uncle Sam, which means that more than 402 Oaxacan brands are present nowadays in the U.S. territory.

Mezcal in the world, but mainly in the USA

According to official statistics, there are already 64 countries where mezcal can be found, and once again, the United States is the main consumer. From there, Spain, France and England are the ones that raise their hands, so you know, if the next time you are traveling you want to pair your paella, your escargots or your fish and chips with mezcal, you just have to give yourself a chance and ask for it, you will certainly find it.

Winning as usual

Well, not as much as usual, but in fact in 2022 according to a IWSR Drinks Market Analysis, there was an estimate that Americans would spend $13.3 billion on agave spirits compared to $12.5 for vodka and $12.3 for whiskey.  We will see in the following months if that's the case, but in the meantime, we will do our part in helping the growth of the figures 😉.

Mezcal is growing and more and more brands are getting into the game and from Púa Mezcal we want to tell you that nothing excites us more than this scenario. Our purpose is to show the new México to the world through an authentic mezcalazo. Whether you drink it in a fine restaurant, on an outing with friends or at home after a day’s work. Straight or accompanied, in a signature cocktail or one that you have invented with whatever you had in the fridge.

Púa Mezcal is for you and it’s here to stay.
