Dear Curious Readers,
As promised some weeks ago, after the post on Destille Berlin, I am getting back on the topic of sustainability with a focus on sustainability in the world of the agave based spirits.

This is made by Sazerac. This is no way an affiliate post. Just for you to know. this said I think it is a beautiful and clear introduction to Mezcal, Sotol and Tequila.
They did a real great work
I especially like that they show the diversity of the varietals!

Bacanora and Raicilla are increasingly gaining in popularity in bars and restaurants.
Tequila is aged in the plant, and not in a barrel nor a bottle ! More and more quality minded producers are looking to express terroir.
It can only be made with Blue Agave + It can only be made in designated states in Mexico. Let's find out more about those two facts below. What is a Blue Agave ? What are the states ?
