Michael Gardner of Del Maguey on “The Wine Down”
Sonja and Brandon open their minds and part their lips for the mystical buzz of Mezcal on this week’s episode. To guide them on their journey is Mezcal impresario Michael Gardner, who has brought along many of the varietals of his label, Del Maguey. They go far and wide on the topic and learn about the growing, distilling, and (most pleasurably) the drinking of the beverage which the Zapotec Indians still consider a gift of the gods. Though the worm in the bottle maybe a myth, the rich and complex flavor of this relative of tequila, is not. We taste a lot of drinks here, but Mezcal is a different spirit altogether.
