The valley is broad, about thirty miles deep and ten miles wide. The climate is desert and tropical, with banana trees, guava, mangoes and other exotic fruits. Faustino Garcia Vasquez is the maker of Chichicapa. He is a humble and talented craftsmen with great respect for the ancient processes.

I am in love with this mezcal. Mind you the last time I had mezcal prior to this one was over a decade ago and there was a dead worm in the bottom of the bottle, but I think my palate is right on with this one. Sweet and smoky, it reminds me of a romantic evening by a campfire, in a glass! I've used this in a cocktail with fresh pineapple juice, and a splash of homemade Fresno chili simple syrup.
