Mezcal is the name given to traditional distilled alcoholic beverages made in various rural areas of Mexico, from certain northern states up to south states, which is nahuatl mexcalli "baked agave." These alcoholic beverages are made from the cooked stems of species of the genus Agave, also known as "maguey," which have fermented sugars. It is a traditional Mexican distilled beverage produced from the fermented juices of the cooked agave plant core.
The different agave species used, which have a wide variety of terpene compounds, the ability to use agave leaves in mezcal fermentation, variations in the ripening stage of agave, cooking of agave that can be done in ground holes with burning wood and heated stones that produce furans and smoky volatiles and are retained in the agave, and some herbs or other natural materials (such as worms) can all contribute to the flavor differences between mezcal.
Mazel Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- AVAILABILITY OF A VARIETY OF FLAVORS IN MEZCAL
The quality and authenticity of mezcal are highly crucial because of the beverage's unique alcoholic flavor, which results from the volatile and non-volatile compounds, the direct precursors of which come from the raw agave itself. These include fatty acids, ranging from capric to lignoceric, free fatty acids, β-sitosterol, and groups of mono-, di-, and triacylglycerols, as well as fructans, the principal carbohydrate of the Agave. Due to higher temperatures and a lower pH in the agave cooking process, fructans could form Maillard compounds, such as furans, pyrans, and ketones.
Moreover, the important parameter that defines the quality of agave beverages is the distillation system used. The composition of the aroma of mezcal is extremely complex. Similarities and differences between mezcal samples can be attributed to the conditions and the raw materials used, in addition to the origin and production season.
- A variety of agave varietals grow throughout Mexico, and each plant or maguey takes on the terroir of the microclimate in which it grows, impacting a mezcal's flavor. Thus, Mexico's most famous agave spirits are mezcal, which may be produced from any agave species, resulting in a wide array of flavor diversity. Mezcal's appellation of origin includes the states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Zacatecas, Guanajuato, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí, Durango, and Michoacán
- According to spirits writer Chris Tunstall, the most common varieties of agave utilized for mezcal are tobalá, tobaziche, tepeztate, arroqueño, and espadín, which is the most common agave and accounts for up to 90% of mezcal. The two types of mezcal are made of 100% agave and are mixed with other ingredients, with about 80% agave
Due to the availability of various flavors in mezcal, consumers prefer it over other crafted spirits. Moreover, the growing interest among consumers regarding ethically sourced products and the tendency to promote beverages such as craft beer, cold-pressed juice, and smoothies with natural ingredients as premium is expected to drive the market growth in the forecast period
- POSITIVE OUTLOOK TOWARDS ADVANCED AND SMART PACKAGING SOLUTIONS
The wine packaging industry is adopting smart and sustainable solutions to make product packaging more consumer-oriented and environmentally friendly. Premiumization makes a brand or product more appealing to consumers by emphasizing its superior quality and exclusivity in the agave-based beverage category, making a brand more appealing and, therefore, more expensive. This can come from new packaging, artisanal production, higher-quality ingredients, new flavors, and social/environmental messaging.
Furthermore, digitally printed packaging offers considerable potential savings over other printing processes and low setup costs. Manufacturers can dispense with bulk orders with large print runs and stock holding. Popular brand designing companies prefer glass bottles for Mezcal packaging. The benefits of digital printing are essential for today's packaging sector. Digital printing is the ideal process for small to medium print runs and enables the creation of customized printing for packaging and displays. Moreover, most of the mezcal available online is packed in glass bottles.
- In April 2018, TagItWine, a new wine production company, launched a new app to provide consumers with the appropriate information necessary to make an informed wine purchase, hopefully resulting in the consumer finding the perfect drink for their unique palette. To use this app, consumers must simply scan a bottle's bar code. Then the app will offer the wine's origins, including the location and sub-region of the vineyard, bottler, and distributor. The data also helps the app gather what's selling inside stores to help companies better understand their target markets
Thus, due to new product launches and developments, an increase in demand for advanced and smart packaging is expected to act as a driver for the North America mezcal market.
- INCREASING CUSTOMERS FOR MEZCAL PRODUCTS
The rapid increase in public awareness of the health advantages of these goods and services is largely responsible for the market's expansion. Another important reason driving the market's expansion is people's awareness of their worries about environmental issues, concerns about those issues, and the health risks associated with consuming unclean and inorganic chemicals. The market's organic products are used to address health issues.
The shifting dietary and lifestyle habits of individuals worldwide are pressuring key market players to produce the same products and develop a dependable and contented customer base over the assessment timeframe. Production is underway that is utilizing the expanding investment for availability and product releases in the worldwide market brilliantly to increase the demand for mezcal products during the assessment timeframe.
- RISING POPULARITY OF DRINKING HEALTHFUL, NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
One of the most rapidly developing industries is the beverage industry, which involves making various drinks such as mezcal. The growing consumer awareness of using natural and organic components in food and drink is predicted to create a challenge in the growth rate of the mezcal industry in the future.
Many fermented foods and beverages contain ethyl carbamate (EC), a known genotoxic carcinogen. Ethyl carbamate is not only carcinogenic but also a known liver toxic agent in humans. Moreover, carbonated beverage consumption has been linked with kidney stones, all risk factors for chronic kidney disease. The increasing number of chronic liver and kidney diseases makes consumers aware of drinking healthfully. People today prefer more non-alcoholic beverages due to such health conditions.
Thus, the rise in chronic health conditions is making consumers aware of the use of non-alcoholic beverages, and this may act as a challenge to the growth of the market.
