Comment:

Antonis Mantzaridis says of his drink, “Semilla is Spanish for ‘seed.’ A seed has one purpose only: to grow, to ‘become.’

"In order to do this it must be dropped in dirt and covered in darkness, then struggle to reach the light. To achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes; to someone who doesn't understand growth this would seem like complete destruction. But the seeds that you plant today, become the harvest that you'll reap tomorrow. And that will be your legacy.”
