World Earth Day is tomorrow and the annual event hopes to hold all of us accountable for actions that support environmental protection. To celebrate and promote sustainability, The Lost Explorer Mezcal is releasing its range of luxury artisanal mezcal to New Zealand shores.
Originating from the rich biodiverse soils of Mexico’s Oaxaca region, the brand is dedicated to empowering sustainable Mexican enterprise, while protecting the artisanal craft and heritage of the country.
