- Jalisco, Mexico
This comes to us from the man behind the Oro de Lidia lineup, Juan Rejon. As a drummer, he has been able to tour extensively in Mexico; when the tours are over, he takes a backpack and “loses himself in the mountains.” This adventurous way of life has led to some trouble— he’s been kidnapped twice, and has escaped twice— but along the way he has also discovered some incredible artisanal tequilas in the heart of Jalisco, which led him to start his own import-export business.
