To solve this problem, Tavis and 35 other artists from across the world came together to create Union Prints, a place online that leverages a network of global wholesale fine art printers to offer high quality prints – both framed and unframed – at affordable prices.

Each element of this kit has been carefully selected and lovingly made, from the Mezcal Creyente, to the hand blown glass, to the custom-cut quartz crystals. Starting with Mezcal Creyente, a velvety smooth liquid with layers of complexity, the kit can be used to make a smoky paloma or a twist on a traditional margarita.
