Enjoy in-person presentations by Bacanora producers themselves, showcasing the traditions, culture, and production methods of borderland mezcals. Learn about agave conservation projects in larger ecosystemic context, including rangeland management and the welfare of agave pollinator species, such as bats. What measures might we take to ensure the viability of northern Mexican agave distillates in years to come? A tasting of Sonoran spirits accompanies the presentations!
