Holy cow was that crazy and insane, and yes even a little fun - two days of agave (oh and Mexican rum!) and 1200 people, it was a not for the faint of heart.Denver, you are one beautiful town with hands down the nicest Lyft drivers anywhere, and a taco scene that gives LA a run for the money.
The first thing you notice about Denver, beyond the the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains on one side and the great eastern plain on the other is how much the town is booming. The amount of construction projects is not to be believed, which makes sense given the population there has grown 15.5% since 2010.
The much anticipated news that Pernod Ricard had acquired a mezcal company finally hit, with perhaps the biggest surprise of all being who it acquired-- Del Maguey. Pernod will take a majority stake in the US' number one mezcal company. The exact terms of the deal were not disclosed. According to the press release and what we have heard from the company, the current management team and staff remain in place and all operations in Mexico remain intact as well.
We're happy to announce the first in what we hope will be a number of collaborations with Flaviar, the Mezcalistas Mezcal Box. Flaviar is a company that we know very well over years of content sharing. They focus on providing samples of spirits in special selections like this mezcal box so that their membership base can try and then buy their favorite spirits.
