You think that you know what traditional craft distillation looks like? So did I… until I was introduced to the real artisans of Los Danzantes from Oaxaca, Mexico. Holy frijole these guys are rockin’ it “old school” using methods that put others to shame.

They press grind the agave’ hearts under a mule-turned stone mill to extract the golden juices and pulp-ferment it in wooden barrels with natural, local, Oaxaca yeasts. They even transfer the yeast from batch to batch—just like making fine sourdough bread—so that the best yeast from the best batches is the one that is used again and again.
