Tequila tasting & Food Pairing Event - May 6th @ 1pm
Tequila, the national spirit of Mexico, is in the midst of a renaissance. This artisanal spirit is moving beyond its reputation as a party drink
associated with lost memories and lingering hangovers. Learn the
difference between adulterated tequilas and 100% blue agave tequilas and
enjoy sipping them like a fine Scotch or Cognac.
Join us on May 6th from 1-3pm for a journey to the beautiful yet enigmatic blue agave landscape in the highlands, lowlands, and valleys of the tequila regions in the
Mexican states of Jalisco, Nayarit, Guanajuato, Tamaulipas, & Michoacán.
In so doing, you will connect with the culture and history of both ancient
and modern Mexico.
This session will provide a base of knowledge with a delicious and educational food pairing featuring a selection of artisan-crafted mezcals from Oaxaca – Mexico's most
culturally rich and biologically diverse state – and beyond. You’ll learn
about the history, culture, and production processes surrounding mezcal,
plus the botany, lifecycle, & agriculture surrounding the agaves used for
mezcal. Plus you’ll taste a flight of five 100% agave mezcals!
