One of Mexico’s best mezcals is also its greenest

 While much attention is paid to eating sustainable, organic and local foods, you may not also be thinking about the carbon footprint of the cocktail you pair with your meal.For example, take the trendy spirit mezcal. In typical production, the amount of liquid waste for every bottle that’s produced measures up to approximately 10 additional bottles.Typically this by-product is discarded into rivers near the distillery (in Spanish, a palenque — not to be confused with the historical Palenque), and these bodies of water are also often sources of drinking water as well as home to an underwater ecosystem.
