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.

In this chapter we are going to go for the methods. We have seen the process but now we go a bit deeper.
The methods are the different techniques used for each stage of the process.
The method begins with the Jima, the different tools used for cutting. The cooking, the different ovens. The mashing, how do they mash the plant once its cooked. The fermentation, times, tools, yeasts, etc. The distillation, most common techniques per region.
