Journey to Oaxaca's Mezcals
Monday, July 1, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM (PDT)
Join us as we gather to sample, celebrate and showcase ten of Oaxaca’s artisan mezcals. Distillers, brand ambassadors, and masters of mezcal will be in attendance to guide you through sampling their spirits. With your ticket purchase, you will receive admittance to the event, a typical mezcal tasting cup, taste of Mexican antojitos, one celebration cocktail and a passport of your journey to Oaxaca’s Mezcals. Come sample new mezcals, or rediscover an old favorite.
When & Where
MEZCAL from OAXACA is an affiliation of 11 independent mezcal brands dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of artisan mezcal, an ancient spirit and ancestral tradition born in the remote highlands of southern Mexico.
Distilled from the heart of the agave plantor piña (p?n- yuh) mezcal is a unique and highly complex spirit that results from an entirely natural and unhurried process. It is created in small batches according to coveted family recipes and methods that have been passed down from father to son for hundreds of years.
The journey from field to bottle is long and arduous, but every step is conducted with infinite care and pride in the long-standing traditions that enable the complex flavors of Mezcal to grace the palate.
MEZCAL from OAXACA is proud to deliver this hidden jewel of Mexican craftsmanship onto the world stage. Our mezcals represent the unique terroir of a dozen different villages, spanning the broad ethno-geographic spectrum of Oaxacas central valley and surrounding foothills. What binds us is a deep reverence for the rich cultural matrix from which true, artisan Mezcal is born.
We invite you to explore the history, behold the art, imbibe the ritual and taste the ancestral magic of MEZCAL from OAXACA.
Thank you for your support with Artisanal Mezcal from Oaxaca!
