Edgar González Ramírez

(Mezcalero of December 2019 – Espadín Pechuga)

Edgar González Ramírez is a first generation mezcalero who grew up in the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca in San Cristóbal Lachirioag. He left his home town in 2001 to head to LA as so many others from Lachirioag had done before him. With NAFTA dismantling the economy of Lachirioag since 1994, and emigration rates at an all time high, Edgar joined forces with his cousin Elisandro to discuss ways in which they could support their town and people… Today, Edgar and Elisandro have a thriving business, Mezcal Tosba.
