In Mexico, families have been passing down the tradition of distilling agave for generations, at times, even clandestinely. From the alluring red highlands of Jalisco to the rugged mountains of Oaxaca, the films follows three producers – Carlos, Graciela, and Aquilino – in this burgeoning renaissance.
