Tequila and Mezcal: what's the difference? Tequila is technically a type of Mezcal, one that must be made from a particular variety of agave called Weber Blue Agave. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any one of dozens of species of agave. Marquis has many of both to choose from, whether you're looking for something to sip straight up or to make a Margarita.
