Info

Pascual Garcia Martinez swings a machete toward a leaf while harvesting maguey piñas outside of Santa Ana. The piñas will be cooked and turned into mezcal. For first timers, the taste of mezcal can be flooring, but with time, the smoky flavor can be appreciated. However, a recent jump in prices of mezcal has put a damper on the flow of the drink, and it's due to a much larger problem.
