Join us as we traverse the rich, and lesser known world of Mezcal!

While many may know Mezcal as the smokier cousin of Tequila; appearing for the first time ever in Seattle, a world class panel of experts to share their respective knowledge, background, and stories, to present to the consumer a well-rounded idea of this mysterious and wonderful Mexican spirit.

In this two hour seminar & tasting, we will be given history lessons from the experts; distillation processes from the owners, and personal accounts from the best in the business about why fell in love with Mezcal, and what drove them to pursue that passion.

Whether you’ve never tried Mezcal or you’re obsessed with everything Mezcal; attendees will benefit greatly from this experience and gain a deeper appreciation for this often misrepresented and amazing spirit.
