If you’re convinced that bottle of liquor with a worm floating at the bottom is genuine tequila, you might want to check this out before you take the plunge. Most likely a marketing play, the worm is only bottled in mezcal, another distilled agave spirit. While tequila comes exclusively from the blue agave plant, mezcal can be distilled from other varieties of the agave and maguey plant.

Still, that doesn’t mean the worm isn’t tasty. It actually, has a smart, pickled flavor that makes for a satisfying snack. Trust.

The infographic below explores more little-known tequila facts, such as the proper way to chase your tequila (if you must) and the difference between tequila and mixto. It’s some crafty knowledge to drop in your pocket this weekend and will come in handy next time you’re trying to tell the difference between Patron and Jose Cuervo.

The museum explains the entire process in more depth plus it has a fascinating collection of tequilas. Yes, a shot of tequila is included with your ticket.
