Created in February 2014 by Simon Difford after misreading the recipe for a Sangre Dulce by Regina Butler at Blackbird Bar in San Francisco. Simon used Valet Falernum in place of Fernet Valet but liked the result. Mezcal is distilled from agave plants which are categorised ‘Succulents’, plants which are thickened and fleshy, allowing them to retain water in arid climates.
