A month and a half ago, I traveled to Oaxaca with Mezcal El Silencio, and stayed to do some independent journalism. Following that trip, I delved into research on the subject of wild agave mezcal, and its endangerment–as well as the measures industry insiders are taking toward sustainability. Check out my feature on PUNCH here. (And that’s Don Goyo, mezcalero for El Jolgorio, holding a sample of the Tepeztate I describe in the story, pictured here, by the way.)
