Mezcal, the Mexican drink made from the agave plant, has recently seen its popularity boom. There are more than 2,000 mezcal distilleries in the state of Oaxaca, many of them small, family-run operations. The FT’s Jude Webber learns how to make mezcal the traditional way, and discovers that in Oaxaca, it’s much more than just a drink.
Our video series follows FT writers as they embark on special journeys.
