About Wild CommonWild Common comes to the Sip Tequila portfolio with foundations on both sides of the Mexico-US border as a collaboration with Maestro Mezcalero Joel Velasco who hand-selects mature espadin and tobala agave from his community in San Luis Del Rio, Oaxaca, and owner and founder, Andy Bardon, contributing National Geographic photographer and athlete, of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
For this expression, to counter a growing and worrisome problem in mezcal involving the over harvest of wild agaves, endangered and close to extinction, Wild Common has committed only working with cultivated agaves endemic to the villages of the producers. In addition, for every agave harvested, a 2 year old agave is given back to the Maestro Mezcalero to be replanted in the community to complete the cycle of sustainability, tradition, and transparency.
A portion of each sale goes towards an extensive greenhouse initiative in Oaxaca where agaves are cultivated from seed to be dispersed across the state and other social initiatives improving the quality of life in rural Mexico.
The commitment to sustainability, tradition, and transparency from Cascahuin has earned them a place in the hearts of agave connoisseurs as well as new consumers, and with Wild Common, they will do it again. The brand's slogan “Nothing Added, Nothing Lost” represents the traditional methods used in creating the mezcal, and the standards upheld by the team for the spirits in their portfolio as a whole.
