The history of this delicious drink dates back several centuries ago, when indigenous people had to seek refuge in a cave as a result of a storm. Suddenly, lightning struck a mezcal, which burned for several hours. When the storm passed, the wind carried a pleasant aroma. One of them took a piece of burnt agave and tasted it, it felt sweet. Then he offered to others, and discovered that utility of the plant.
An indigenous person forgot the juice for several days and come back to his hut, he discovered a new scent that covered the room. Then he noted that the juice had small bubbles forming a thick white foam. When testing it he found a rich and distinct flavor.
Then he separated the liquid from the foam for consumption.
