In this writeup for PACIFIC, a magazine affiliated with The San Diego Union-Tribune, Carolina Gusman spotlights a March 5, 2020 mezcal presentation, tasting and fundraiser that Erstwhile Mezcal hosted in conjunction with Tahona Bar in San Diego, California.  All ticket proceeds from the event were donated to S.A.C.R.E.D. (Saving Agave for Culture, Recreation, Education and Development) for their project of replanting tobalá agave seedlings, and gifting seedlings to mezcal producers and farmers in need of agaves.
