About this recipe
"Twice a year, Eduardo Reyes ventures to Oaxaca, Mexico, in pursuit of purveying the finest mezcals the region has to offer. He works with the individual mezcaleros to import their limited small-batch supplies of the agave-based liquor Reyes touts as “the father of tequila” because of its older, smokier, stronger profile. For two years, Reyes has operated Artisanal Mezcals in Reno, bringing this age-old-yet-newish libation to Nevada." -- Heidi Bethel
