Yes, we dubbed Erick Rodriguez the “Indiana Jones” of mezcal. But we did it for all the right reasons because he’s been out there scouring the most remote corners of Mexico for mezcals that really sing the song of the countryside. Through his Almamezcalera label he’s brought out some of the wildest (iguana pechuga? peyote mezcal?) and most narratively driven (50 year old agaves dated through a murder mystery) to light. But his bread and butter mezcals are some of the most fascinating you’ll taste. The guy knows his stuff and he’s a vociferous advocate for ancestral mezcaleros so come ready to soak in his experiences and vision for the mezcal industry. Get your tickets today.
