So delicious as an aperitif.
|The slogan alludes to a very popular radio advertising campaign of the 1950s. If you happened to produce a Bartissol cap to the right person (a radio man in disguise) you could win a million centimes.|

|Good exposition was most important.
Otherwise the bottle could have been

|Bardinet exists since 1857. Négrita became a deposited brand almost thirty years later in 1886. The micro-dressed lady dates from the mid 1970s.||Reposado means that the Mezcal could rest for at least two months in wooden barrels.||con gusano means that the bottle contains a worm which lives inside the Agava plant.|
|Since times immemorial aphrodisiac powers are attributed to
this worm. But that's not why a (nor exactly this) gusano is added to the bottle.
It's presumably only a matter of taste.
The gusano is a caterpillar of a moth; two species actually.
+ The red gusano (chinicuil, Hypopta agavis) crawles inside the stem of the Agave (that's the one you'll prefer in the bottle).
+ The white gusano (ocuilin, Acentrocneme hesperiaris) lives in the leaves and works its way to the heart of the plant. This caterpillar can reach 7 cm and is considered delicious fried in olive oil.
