              In pursuit of the story behind a beguiling drink Granville Greene embarks on a journey through the remote Mexican highlands to discover the histories and traditions behind this smoke-drenched agave distillate that has quickly become a craft cocktail darling, rivaling even its bet...ter-known cousin tequila. Greene visits the Zapotec, Mixtec, and Nahua communities, sipping rare, small-batch mezcals poured straight from the stills of mezcaleros who craft the drink using local agaves, family recipes, and production methods passed down through generations. A seasoned travel writer, Greene brings readers along on his captivating quest for the soul of the oldest distillate in The Americas, detailing the sights, smells, and intoxicating flavors of the mountainous Oaxaca and Guerrero states, their lively markets and rural distilleries. He turns his journalist s eye to the broader context of impoverished villages in a rapidly changing economic and political landscape, exploring the gold-rush style surge of single-village mezcals as luxury exports, and the subsequent overharvesting that threatens the diversity of wild agave crops in the region. Para todo mal mezcal, y para todo bien tambien! So goes the Mexican proverb: For everything bad mezcal, and for everything good as well!
