Packaging Spotlight: APRENDIZ mezcal



Designed by

Toro Pinto





APRENDIZ  is a mezcal by destilería Santasabia. APRENDIZ transalates as apprentice: the goal was to create a friendly product that would feel as an introductory beverage for those who wish to start drinking mezcal . We developed the brand, original artowrk and label design based on the concepts of mystics, alchemy and pop culture . This way we aimed the brand to appeal to a contemporary market yet at the same time with a narrative that made references to a mysterious place of origin: A mystical, mysterious Oaxaca, México. As part of the communication design project we also developed the web design and overall narrative contents of the project.

Company Spotlight: Lorenz Agave Spirits – El Jolgorio Mezcal



Traditional, artisanal mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies and festivities - known as "Jolgorios" - in villages in our native homeland of Oaxaca, México. Our nine unique El Jolgorio Mezcals are made exclusively from different species and varieties of wild-harvested agave by Master Distillers in local indigenous Zapotec villages in Oaxaca, and are twice distilled in copper pot stills. On every bottle is inscribed the species of agave, the age at harvest, the village of production, the name of the Master Distiller, and the batch and lot number so as to truly transport and connect the drinker with the land, people, and plants at the heart and soul of our mezcal. Salud y Dixebe!

Lorenz Agave Spirits has specialized in sourcing top ultra-premium, most renowned, and best value-for-price tequilas, mezcals, and other agave spirits out of a passion for the culture of Mexico, fine cuisine and beverage, and the cultural history (and even botany!) of agave. Our goal since our founding in 2010 has been to import the best of every type of agave spirit that Mexico produces, and to represent them with the aficionado's passion and intellectual curiosity. Perhaps years from now, we'll seek to start our own spirits brand - but make no mistake, we have no intention of doing such a thing prematurely. The truth is, we're too busy enjoying the heck out of the learning process! Our continuing quest for new knowledge, new products, and new cultural experiences will continue to lead us to select only the best tequila, mezcal, and other spirits at all price points - those that we can truly be proud to import, promote, and educate imbibers about.

Snack Spotlight: Que Pasa Red Corn Tortilla Chips


Stone-ground whole grain corn with a sprinkle sea salt. Why so sweet? These crimson tortilla chips get their color and signature flavor from sugar beet juice.



Stone ground corn*, canola*, and/or sunflower* oil, red beet powder* (red beet juice concentrate*, maltodextrin*), sea salt, trace of lime.







About the company:

Sometimes it’s really nice to go back to the basics. That’s how we felt when we began as a street front deli in 1983 and we still feel that way today. Inspired by Mexican tradition we wanted to stone-grind corn to make our own flavorful masa, hand-cut tortilla chips, keep chemicals out of the kitchen, share stories, and take care of our community by feeding people well. With artisanal flare we’ve been crafting foods to make you and your taste buds dance. Arriba!

When it comes to quality, no kernel is left unturned. From our carefully sourced whole-grain corn to our skillfully smoked jalapenos, at Que Pasa only the best ingredients make the cut. Keeping it real as nature intended, our foods are organic and non-gmo. And just to make sure no one’s left out of the fiesta, we’ve got plenty of gluten free and vegan options to choose from.
