      They don’t seem to have old data, or any, on their website anymore. I no longer have the presentation but I don’t think there was much that I did not put into the post.

    I dont suppose you have analysed the up to date figures have you and be able to share them? Alas I dont speak Spanish (yet) or I’d do it myself. I’ll send you a free bottle when I launch my label. Thanks in advance

      The presentation is on the COMERCAM website, but it is in Spanish. I know that at least one premium mezcal, Ilegal, is already in Australia. I saw a press release a few months ago announcing an importer relationship that they had reached agreement on….

    Just curious, did you email COMERCAM in spanish? They just standardize the numbers to 38% to be comparable with Tequila I imagine. They take the total number of liters in whatever proof and do the math to see how many total liters were sold at 38%. For example if you sell 1000 liters at 50% alc. per vol. You can figure out the equivalent at 38% by multiplying (1000L X 50) then divide by 38. The answer is 1315.79 liters at 38%. This way the numbers are much clearer and can be compared with Tequila to see the market share. Now that I looked on the Comercam website, I saw that they already changed all the numbers to a standard 38%. So in your blog those numbers are the complete export numbers for all mezcal. I’m sure if you double check last years presentation and do the math, you’ll see it all works out.

    “2009 Exports 414,608 Liters, which is equal to 46,067 9L cases
    2010 Exports 610,685 Liters, which is equal to 67,853 9L cases
    2011 Exports 647,989 Liters, which is equal to 71,998 9L cases
    The percentage increases are +47%% from 2009 to 2010 and only 6% 2010 to 2011.”

      My friend, you are a fountain of knowledge and I thank you for your efforts to educate a PhD. You are a tenured professor by comparison! I will work through the numbers, and verify your thoughts.

      I did not email COMERCAM in Spanish, so perhaps that is part of the problem. Thanks again. Keep reading as I appreciate the support!

        No worries! None of those guys speak english very well so your email might get lost. They are super nice and knowledgable. PM me if you have any questions for them in the future and I’ll help you out getting a translation to the right person.
