“The Agave Wonders Mezcal Tasting and Pairing Dinner” pays tribute to the agave and the culture of mezcal in Mexico.
In this one-of-a-kind experience, attendees will take a trip through Mexico’s most exquisite flavors, its Agave fields, its climates, its territory, and its culture.
Learn all about the denominations of origin of Mezcal, Tequila, and Raicilla. its regions, its processes, and most importantly the different types of agaves that exist in Mexico.
Man has domesticated the agave, harvests such as Espadín for Mezcal and Blue Webber for tequila are pretty common nowadays. But we have many types of beautiful wild agaves that we grow all across Mexico, ranging from a Madrecuishe, Cirial, Tobala, Papalometl, or Masparillo, just to mention a few, to jewels such as Tepeztate, Jabalí, and Cerrudo.
During the tasting, attendees will be briefed on the history of Mezcal in Mexico, the introduction includes music in Nahuatl and tales from Nahuatl mythology about mezcal.
We had already two previous tastings, the one on January 30 involved Raicilla, one of our Tequilas and a premium Mezcal. (Raicilla Saite, Tequila siempre añejo, and Mezcal Los Ocotales Madrecuishe); while the tasting on February 13 featured 3 premium mezcals (Caballo Viejo Mezcal Blanco, Caballo Viejo Mezcal Reposado and Mezcal Los Ocotales Madrecuishe).
But the best is yet to come, because the tasting that will take place on Saturday, March 13th will feature 3 premium mezcals. (Mezcal Caballo Viejo Blanco, Mezcal Los ocotales Madrecuishe Joven and Mezcal Caballo Viejo reposado).
In the tasting, the 3 mezcals are paired with 3 entries to enjoy, savor, and understand the flavor notes of each one of these three elixirs.
After one of our previous tastings, dinner included stuffed chile and shrimp fettuccine as the two main dishes. For dessert vanilla snow with coricos (which is a Sinaloan corn cookie).
