“Great mezcal tasting and training with Yuan at Erstwhile Mezcal! My staff was all very excited. Just tasted my dining room staff (who couldn’t make the training) on the Erstwhile lineup. They loved them all – especially the Arroqueño!”
Senior Director of Marketing
“We LOVE working with Erstwhile Mezcal. Our team had SO much fun! Thank you Yuan for all your knowledge, expertise, and passion behind the mezcal. Working with you was such a breeze, and you made the impossible happen for our company’s end of year celebration. From sorting all the logistics, to extra attention to the tiny details, to a fantastic, interactive event – we had a blast. I have passed your information on to my colleagues, and I can’t wait to work with you on future events!”

“Yesterday’s tasting was perfect and I appreciate the extra work to get things out within the short timeframe, thanks again! Virtual team building is a huge challenge for our teams, and you made the whole process a breeze. I love the mission of your organization, the content capturing each mezcalero, and I especially love your product packaging. It’s exciting to see Oaxacan local businesses reach a larger geographic footprint.”
