Support Small-Scale Agave Producers

Support Small-Scale Agave Producers

The trend of celebrity-endorsed spirits has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many well-known figures jumping on the bandwagon to cash in on the growing industry. But do we need to support a billionaire reality TV star or any of other the celebrities with no traditional background or expertise in the spirit-making process?

The agave spirits industry is steeped in tradition, with many techniques and processes passed down through generations. Therefore, it is important to consider whether it is appropriate to support celebrity-endorsed products that may not align with these traditional values and practices rather than supporting those who have dedicated their lives to honing their craft and preserving the traditional methods of spirit-making.

Step away from the big names and brands and explore the world of agave spirits. For example, drinking raicilla and sotol can be a way to support traditional Mexican culture and small-scale producers. Raicilla and sotol are traditional Mexican spirits gaining popularity in the United States and other countries. They are made from different types of agave plants and have unique flavors and aromas that make them a great addition to any home bar.

Here are a few ways to support independent agave spirit producers in Mexico:

  1. Buy directly from them: Look for small-scale producers and purchase their products from their website or a local store.
  2. Support local bars and restaurants that carry their products: Many independent agave spirit producers may not have the resources to distribute their products, so supporting local bars and restaurants that carry their products is a great way to ensure they get visibility.
  3. Attend tastings and events: Many independent agave spirit producers participate in tastings and events, a great opportunity to try their products and learn more about them.
  4. Spread the word: Share information about independent agave spirit producers with friends and family and on social media.
  5. Join or support organizations that promote and protect traditional agave spirits: Many organizations exist to promote and protect traditional agave spirits while supporting local communities:  S.A.C.R.E.D. — a nonprofit that supports Mexican communities where heritage agave spirits are made, Mezcal Regulatory Council (CRM), and individuals like the Bat Man of Mexico and his project of creating a more sustainable environment for agaves to grow in.
