A nice look at Cuish

When it rains documentaries, it can also pour. We just heard about this very affectionate short about Cuish and its founder Felix Hernandez. Cuish bottles mezcal from a collection of Oaxacan mezcaleros and also has a very nicely appointed tasting room in the city of Oaxaca.

They also do incredible packaging projects, and really bring traditional mezcal to life. Plus they’re all around great people. Make sure that you visit next time in town and treasure any of those bottles that you bring back with you. I still keep two of the great boxes I have from them on prominent display in my living room!

This part of a really interesting short documentary series called Spago (thread in Italian). Make sure to check out the rest of the clips on their YouTube channel.

Max co-founded Mezcalistas with Susan way back in 2012. Before that he was a journalist at Salon.com and The San Francisco Chronicle.
