Interview from 3rd Annual Taste of Mexico:
Dave Miller: How did you get into doing Mezcal?
Cecilia: Well um, kind of a long story but just to put it short… It was a trip that I took to Oaxaca about four or five years ago and the it was the first time I was there taking in the culture, taking in the people and the taste of Mezcal.

And that’s how the blog started and people started calling me la nina del Mezcal. (Watch Interview for more)

In Haiti, you’ll almost always find Cola Couronne in tall glass bottles as well. My friend Jonathan, who used to work in the Coca-Cola plant where they make Couronne, explained to me that there is no aluminum in Haiti. READ MORE
