Who Created Mezcal Week?

In 2012 we (Susan Coss and Max Garrone) started the blog Mezcalistas about mezcal because we loved that Mexican spirit so much. As our relationship with agave spirits progressed, so did the number and variety of tastings that we organized culminating in Mezcal: Mexico in a Bottle. But that wasn’t enough, everyone we talked to wanted to do their own special tasting, film screening, talk, dinner, art show and we want to make space for all that creativity and mezcal, hence Mezcal Week.
