The #distillation history in Mexico seems to start in XVI century with coconut introduction and asiatic distillation knowledge.
The Mexican pottery development helped to include "Ollas" in Mexican-asiatic distillation apparatus. Many of them are still alive in the traditional knowledge for Agave Historical Spirits from Jalisco to Oaxaca.
In #MezcalDeOlla from Oaxaca you could see the asiatic adoption with the basic elements:
- Fireplace and Olla ferments container.
- Olla boiler vapors and spoon spirit receptor.
- Olla condensation and tube.
¡Same technology is used after centuries with good results!
We have also traditional knowledge still alive about the agriculture, native yeast and #agaveBiodiversity.
Intensification and new technologies could be a risk for this important knowledge "reservoir".
