Tess talks to us about her experience in the mezcal world and what to expect if you go to one of her classes. She explains the etymology of the word mezcal and we discuss terroir. Hey Hey Agave is a podcast from TUYO NYC.
Recently, I had the great privilege of interviewing Patrick Dacy, founder and owner of Duke’s Liquor Box in Greenpoint Brooklyn. This article is a synthesis of our conversation which I tried to keep as close to the actual audio as possible.
