Wormsalt , as it is known in its native Mexico, is a traditional spice for tequila, cocktails and salsa. The gusano, or worm, at the bottom of a bottle of cheap mezcal is actually moth larva. Prized as a source of protein since Pre-Hispanic times, the larvae live in the agave plants used to make tequila and mezcal. Fattened on sweet agave nectar, they might be sautéed and folded into warm tortillas or toasted and ground up with rock salt and dried chile peppers for sal de gusano: worm salt. Our product comes from Oaxaca, Southern Mexico. Agave worm salt from Mexico. Direct import. In fact, it's about a salt from the maguey worm. The worm lives in the agave plants and spends his whole life feeding on it. The worms are dried and roasted, ground and seasoned with a mixture of different chilli varieties from the coastal region of Oaxaca. The salt is sea salt from the coast of Colima, Mexico. If you drink mezcal, you shouldn't miss the Sal de gusano. Licking the lime and salt off the palm of your hand can be done without. We recommend lime or orange wedges that are dipped into the salt. Take a sip of mezcal and bite into the carving - a really special taste experience!
