    My father-in-law. He's been drinking it for years and probably picked it up when they lived in Peru. He worked for a mining company that had operations down there and they moved the family down there. My wife basically grew up in Peru.

    I started this year. My wife had really bad headaches and he proposed she have some mate. He gave her a cheap silicone gourd but it came with a terrible bombilla (at allowed even stems through) and a bag of Taragui traditional.

    As soon as I could I bought my own gourd and it came with two really nice bombillas and some samples of various flavors (cocoa, lime, lemon, orange, etc) to try out.

    I generally just add the mate to the gourd and then a tablespoon of honey to my thermos to sweeten it up. I'm starting to come around to the unsweetened bitter flavor though.

    Its become a staple at work for me.

    Sidenote: I got a titanium straw for my Yeti and my father-in-law thought it was a bombilla.

    Just water tonight. Grandmas on hospice care and I need to be sober to help my parents when her time comes.

    After life settles down, I'm going on a multi day bender...about the time Battlefield 1 launches when I have a week off.

    That's an interesting piece of G10 and steel you've got there. What's the story behind it?

    Trying out a new Rye tonight. Comparing it against Bulleit Small Batch Rye for a good standard baseline. Also trying Nocino for replacing sugar in the old fashioned. Nocino is a Walnut liquor, and this one is from a local distillery.
