Hi Nate, please introduce yourself.

Hi my name is Nate Brown, I live in NYC, and I’ve been a creative director for the past 15 years, I’m obsessed with Mezcal, and now I’ve found a way to fuse both of those passions and it's a dream come true (Bonus: I get to do it with my best friend too!)

What's a brand you've recently spotted

Rainbo. This brand drew me in with their really cool rainbow/mushroom branding. I tend to get lured in easily by pretty branding, packaging and photography - it’s definitely a weak spot for me. Coupled with my all-things-shroom obsession, I was excited to try their product. I use The Lions Mane every day in my coffee. In all honesty, I have no idea how to gauge the efficacy of this product, but I tell myself it does what it's supposed to do.

What are some brands you've recently tested?

Olipop. Water and Mezcal are pretty much the only two beverages I drink, I’ve never really had a craving for soda, or sweet drinks (besides a spicy marg!) but discovering Olipop changed that for me - The Vintage Cola flavor hits!

Asystem. Overexerting myself in the gym is a character trait of mine, and the Radical Relief roller really helps me survive.
