¡Hey Hey! Agave

 

1 + Tess Rose Lampert

In this episode, we introduce you to Tess. We learn about how she became involved in the agave industry and we discuss the classes she teaches in and around New York. She explains the etymology of the word Mezcal and why we sometimes use the term agave distillate. We talk about the terroir of mezcal in relationship to Italian wine and discuss some current topics within the mezcal community.

Tess is a scholar and educator specializing in the culture of beverages and food. She is an advocate for the responsible cultivation, promotion, and preservation of agave distillates. Tess holds an MA from the University of East Anglia, UK, in Philosophy of Food and Drink and an Advanced Degree from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.

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.

We touched on several topics surrounding the production and exportation of agave spirits from Mexico. This first conversation will provide a clear and informed understanding of how agave distillates are made including what information to look for on a bottle’s label.

We get asked this question a lot, as you can imagine! The answer is simply, “tiny cup”. We decided to make our version of the archetypal mezcal copita because we wanted something from which to drink this exquisite spirit that matched its specialness......

As part of our mission, we highlight the fabricators and suppliers we partner with to create our products. In what some might call “radical transparency” we aim to share our production process, the people, and materials involved in the making of this mezcal sipping cup.
