This week we're presenting the first episode of Agave Road Trip. Agave Road Trip is a new series from HRN that provides gringo bartenders with firsthand knowledge about heritage agave spirits from Mexico, including mezcal, raicilla, bacanora, and destilado de agave. In episode 1 our friends Lou Bank and Chava Periban introduce themselves, the series, and some mind-blowing arroqueño and Santa Maria Sola de Vega.

We'll be presenting an episode of their first season every Sunday for the next 8 weeks, but if you want to listen to them all right now, subscribe to the Agave Road Trip feed. Plus, find extra photos and related links at

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
