About La Mezcaleria
La Mezcaleria (mezcal bar) born in 2013 in the heart of east side Vancouver, as the first Mezcaleria in Canada offering the finest hand craft mezcales and cocktails coming out from different regions of Mexico.
We cook our food from traditional Mexican recipes made with local, organic and sustainable products when available; our menu offers botanas (snacks) and tacos that are meant to be shared with friends and family and chased with a sip of mezcal.
What Is Mezcal? Mezcal (also: Mescal or Meskal) is a spirit distilled from mash made out of the steamed hearts of various species of agaves. The word mezcal comes from the Aztec language, the Nahuatl, and means “cooked agave”: mezcalli from metl = agave, ixcalli = cooked. Historically, mezcal is the general term of agave spirits made in Mexico.
