When in Mexico if you shoot Tequila or agave spirit that is a sign that you are not from their country. Quality agave spirits in Mexico are sipped and appreciated. Most of the distillers I met could sip on Mezcal or Tequila from midday to midnight but never got drunk.
Who knows when we can consume again, but before we do I want to pose a thought.
“If you consume consciously, with knowledge and understanding for what you put into your body, then you digest not only with your body but your mind as well.” Warren goodman
I grapple with the thought that the product we produce if abused can have negative effects on your life. Mind, body and soul. To some, I am their drug dealer.
My hope is to find and promote a balance in consumption of our product. Like the Mexicans I want us to celebrate and have fun with Leonista but never forget to treat her with respect. When disrespected she will disrespect you right back. I want positive experiences and sustainability.
So in the end, I hope that when we can consume again, you will drink with respect.
