Eduardo will explain the process of creating sustainably-produced mezcal and Wahaka’s reforestation efforts in Mexico through Fundación Agaves Silvestres. Virtually visit the Wahaka palenque where there is no machinery, no industrial equipment, no hint of mass production, because Wahaka believes the old world is still the best world. Guests will enjoy a generous selection of small bites, taste Wahaka expressions and enjoy a special Wahaka craft cocktail while Eduardo shares his passion for the unique and complex libations made for generations in Mexico. Born in Mexico City, Eduardo’s passion for “la bonne chère” grew during his 20 years spent in Paris, France. Now in America, he is an importer of Mexican libations, always looking to share his appreciation for his crafts in three different languages: Spanish, English and French. “Lalo” to his friends, Eduardo is an enthusiastic agave specialist, Managing Partner of Wahaka Mezcal and Back Alley Imports, an oenophile and, as of March 2019, an Oficial Mezcal Ambassador by the COMERCAM.
