The Mazatlan Agave Fiesta Festival 2020, at the Museo de Arte is absolutely the best place to be this weekend.
Cocktail mixing contest, exhibitions, conferences, lectures, talks, about mezcal, tequila, Raicilla, Sotol and Bacanora (and of course, premium cocktails at a good price).
It is intended that each and every person who decide to come to the Expo, can develop a level of personal identification with each of the premium brands that will be promoted during this three-day long event.
Raicilla, is a distilled Mexican agave spirit with nuanced, vegetal flavors. Like tequila and mezcal, raicilla is made from the agave plant. Region: Jalisco and Nayarit.
Bacanora is made from 100% Agave Pacifica. There are many different types of Agave and manufacturing methods to produce different kinds of Mezcal. Region: Sonora.
Sotol is a distilled spirit of Mexican origin sourced from Dasylirion texanum, Asparagaceae, and Dasylirion wheeleri (commonly known as Desert Spoon or, in Spanish, sotol), a plant that grows in northern Mexico, New Mexico, west Texas, and the Texas Hill Country.
