The kit's basket, handmade by Oaxacan women, is crafted from palm leaves with natural dye coloring. Passed down for generations, the methods and patterns are traditional. The veladora, a glass with a circular base that opens up to the mouth, is perfect for letting mezcal "breathe" without overwhelming you with its strong compounds. Originally used for prayer candles in Catholic churches, the base is imprinted with a crucifix to remind you of its origins. Someone cleverly adapted the veladora for drinking mezcal, creating a whole new trend seen in both churches and bars in Mexico today.
