Description


‘Before mezcal I knew tequila.  We danced together and had a good time.  Then I found mezcal and we not only danced but we talked and talked.  As a lover of whisky, mezcal was an easy step for me.  And Tom is the person to tell you all about it.’

Thomasina Miers, author and chef-owner of Wahaca restaurant chain  

‘Thomas, aside from having one of the early great beards of NYC, played some of the finest music ever to crawl into my drunken ears. He retains the same intimidating and generous approach to mezcal: know everything worth knowing about a subject, avoid the garbage, love it, and share.’

James Murphy, LCD Soundsystem

About the Author


British-born DJ and music producer, Thomas Bullock, has played and recorded around the world. While touring Mexico in 2006 he was poured his first mezcal and experienced a major connection with the drink. Taking up the cause, he became the first distributor in the UK and EU dedicated solely to mezcal, gaining a good reputation within the mezcal community at home and abroad. This, coupled with his passion and understanding of the plants and culture, led to him giving talks and tastings on the subject and organising events for The Mezcal Circle Club that use his music and art connections to promote and explain the qualities of mezcal.

Praise For…


'Be warned. This is a dangerous book. If you read it you’re going to want to go out and buy as much mezcal as you can find. The author is so knowledgeable and passionate about this Mexican spirit that you get carried along by his enthusiasm and want to try a sip of every mezcal he mentions.'—Travel Distilled
