About the event

Presentation: 

The presentation will focus on why mezcal is the most complex spirit on earth, with innumerable nuances which cannot be matched in other spirits. After the talk there will be a question period and an opportunity for attendees to sample a dozen different mezcal expressions .... distilled in copper, distilled in clay, and distilled using a refrescador. The range of mezcals will include pechuga, tobalá, espadín, mexicano, tepeztate, coyote, jabalí, and more. The first part of the presentation will explain about Mezcal production, and the impact of the boom on the state of Oaxaca.
