Last fall, I spent a few days in the Sierra of Oaxaca. Elisandro, owner of Tosba distillery had invited me to visit his distillery way back when I first met him in San Francisco last year. I was immediately intrigued, since I had never visited that part of Oaxaca before. After a five hour ride (including 2 hours off-roading) my brother and I arrived to jungle paradise. This place was absolutely breathtaking. Elissandros cousin, Edgar and his father welcomed us with a pitcher of mezcal and a machete in hand. After a few hours of venturing out into the Oaxaca jungle, we came back to more mezcal and to a fantastic meal Edgars wife and mom had prepared for us.
It was an incredible time. I've been back about four times ever since, and look forward to more visits. I hope all of you enjoy this small video my brother Fernando and I produced. I seriously can't stop watching it, it brings me back to that day we spent at La Chiroag.
