Tuxpan. Arturo, his Family, Carnitas, Raicilla, Tradition. We were so excited to begin our travel and get to meet one of the greatest producers. Arturo is young but comes from a long line of producers. The tradition in this Taberna is vibrant.
Season 5 to launch shortly
Hi. Yes we are still around. And soon there are more episodes to come!
We also will have a new co-host.
Season 3 starts October 23rd.
We’ve been quiet for a while. It has been a crazy year. Nevertheless we managed to record a couple of very enlightening conversations (at least we think that) during 2020.
The first episode will drop Friday, where it’s just Diego and Albert reflecting on the last months and what we have learned so far from this podcast. Then we will drop a new episode every 2 weeks until we run out of material 🙂
Intermission – Season 2 Preparations
We need your participation in finding Europe’s best Mezcal places.
Just a quick heads up on what we are working on. And we need your help too, because we want to find and share with you cool Agave spirit bars all across Europe. Help us find them!
Also, if you are in Munich, meet Alex at Auroom (www.auroom.de). Here are some pictures of my visit.

About this chapter
For this special chapter we were invited to a basement inside a barber shop, where the pop-up “Puntas, Gracias” is located.
Christian Schrader and Tom Bullock want to make Agave spirits accessible to anybody and share their knowledge and experiences. Based on your individual preferences you can taste four different spirits in a session and they will guide you through the experience. You also can purchase bottles there.
We recorded this chapter to give you a feeling for the experience.
