Educational Tasting of Rare & Artisan Mezcals
Thursday June 25, 7:00pm, Mezcaleria Oaxaca on Capitol Hill (Seattle, WA)
Please join Experience Mezcal founder Clayton Szczech for an educational tasting of mezcals from throughout Mexico – with a focus on un-imported and un-branded expressions. The tasting flight will include four mezcals, carefully chosen to exhibit diversity of agave species, production regions and methods, maestros mezcaleros, aromas and flavors.
This is a private event and seating is very limited. Price includes the presentation and tasting flight, light food from Mezcalería Oaxaca, and gratuity. Online RSVP and pre-payment of $50
This tasting is sold out. Please feel free to email or call (503-841-1739) if you’d like to be placed on the waiting list.
Clayton lives in Mexico City and conducts monthly research trips throughout the mezcal producing regions. This tasting flight will consist of mezcals he has encountered in the past year in Oaxaca, Jalisco and beyond.
A note on pricing: Experience Mezcal is completely independent, and does not work for or accept payment from any mezcal brand. The price of admission will barely cover the cost of these rare mezcals and travel expenses. If you wonder why mezcal is not (and should not be) cheap, please come with those questions! These are 100% hand-made spirits produced by individuals and families in traditional rural areas. Wild agave is harvested by hand over widely ranging expanses of land, firewood for the oven and still must be searched out and gathered, and the rustic processes are slow and inefficient by design. All these factors make for exceedingly complex and unique spirits.
