The Pastry War says
The legal definition of mezcal is currently being reconsidered in Mexico, and obviously, this will have an enormous impact on the traditions and producers who maintain them in Mexico. This is your chance to learn more and get involved! PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS AT BLACKSMITH, NOT THE PASTRY WAR.

This event, open to the public, will involve an in-depth discussion of these changes and how they impact producers. As we proceed through this tasting, Bobby Heugel will provide mezcals from various regions in Mexico – recognized by the Appelation of Origin and not – from his house that are not available in the United States at all! The discussion will be led Bobby Heugel and Alba Huerta.

To learn more, click the link below and watch a video about traditional mezcal production, and sign the petition supporting small and artisanal mezcal distillers.
