We took advantage of BCB to speak to Don Guillermo Erickson Sauza, an absolute legend in the industry. Of course we talked about his brand “Fortaleza” but the conversation went deeper into family and why Guillermo’s heart is in Mexico.
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.
- Caballito Cerrero

Our friends Tom Bullock and Christian Schrader have created a very cool pop-up experience in Berlin. In the basement of a hair salon they are recreating a truly Mexican feeling with a exquisite selection of Mezcales, Bacanoras, Sotols, Raicillas and Tequilas.
Puntas, Gracias! is the name of the event. You can find more info via their Facebook page.
