Ronda Brulotte, The Art and Craft of Oaxacan Mezcal

Not only is mezcal Oaxaca, Mexico’s fastest-growing rural industry, it connects the region to producers, brokers, and consumers across the U.S.- Mexico border and throughout the world. In this presentation, Dr. Ronda Brulotte discusses the rise of mezcal as a global commodity within the artisanal food movement, as well as how this transformation has impacted rural producer communities in southern Mexico.
