Agave: creative strategies to save it with NatGeo

NatGeo joins Mezcal Amores on a journey inside Oaxacas’s mezcal producing communities to get a detailed insight of how it really is to work with the agave, but most important: on how to take care of this specie.

Well known wild life photographer and journalist, Alec Jacobson, followed us through of one of our multiple tours to Oaxaca and its mezcal zones, so that he could have first hand experience on our philosophy, about the support to the mezcal producing communities, but also, to know how we work the sustainability of the agave “espadin”.

Coolhuntermx: Mezcal Amores’ message

COOL HUNTER MX, one of Mexico’s finest blogs:  caught up with us in Oaxaca, to learn more about mezcal.

During their stay, we showed them a little bit more about what is Mezcal Amores as a brand: our natural and artisanal production process we have to achieve an organic mezcal, our future plans, and also about our philosophy to support local communities.

The top quote of this article was:

“We want to give a sustainability and win-win message”

Why? Well, because of the companies that are focused in selling and forgetting about Mexico, which is and will be our focus. We care about the products our country has to offer and so for the producers behind them; the land, their communities and its history, the process, traditions, and of course, all of those ancient techniques that had made of Mezcal Amores/Amarás, what we are today.

The Guardian: “Mezcal is everything tequila is not.”

The Guardian, one of the oldest and most important papers in the UK and the world, got inside the mezcal grounds of Oaxaca, and if you allow us to be more specific, in our palenque.

This great British paper made quite a complex and very proper portrait of the Mezcal culture, not only by witnessing the process in first hand, but also after learning all the different qualities and processes that put mezcal apart -and even on top- of tequila; all, while they were also enjoying the cultural and gastronomic offer that Oaxaca has to offer, which as plenty and beautiful, as unique.
