Mezcal Market: Segmental Overview

The global mezcal market is segmented on the basis of product type, category, distribution channel, and geography. Based on product type, the market is categorized into joven, reposado, anejo, and others. The reposado segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during 2022–2030. Reposado, which translates to "rested" in Spanish, represents a middle ground between the youthful boldness of joven and the aged complexity of anejo mezcal. It undergoes a relatively short aging process of two months to one year in oak barrels. This aging imparts a mellower character to the spirit, smoothing out some of the agave's sharper edges. While retaining the core agave flavors, reposado mezcal develops additional nuances, such as hints of vanilla, caramel, and wood. Its surging demand is due to its ability to balance the unaged vibrancy of joven and the refined complexity of anejo, making it a preferred choice for those seeking a smoother and more approachable mezcal experience.       

Based on category, the mezcal market is segmented into 100% agave and blend. By distribution channel, the market is categorized into supermarkets and hypermarkets, specialty stores, online retail, and others. By geography, the global mezcal market is broadly segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South & Central America.
