The Problem with Tequila

  • Todos Santos 2456 North California Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

The history of mezcal has reached a critical turning point. Political decisions about its production and regulation stand to impact the future of the entire category. For better or worse, that regulation has a real impact on what producers do, and whose products make it to market.

There's no clearer example of potential regulatory pitfalls than the category of tequila. Join us as we talk about the bureaucratic blunders that have plagued the category of tequila and shaped it into one of the most frequently adulterated and modified spirits categories in the world. We'll taste through tequilas and mezcales, with an emphasis on cracking the tequila code.

Join Quiote and Todos Santos's beverage director and agave expert Jay Schroeder monthly agave spirits class and tasting.

The class will be held in Todos Santos, Quiote's subterranean mezcaleria, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will include four pours of different mezcales during the hour chosen specifically to highlight different aspects of the spirit and its production methods.

The intimate class will be limited to 25 people.

Beginners welcome!
