Mezcal 201: Regions and Traditions

  • Todos Santos 2456 N California Ave Chicago, IL 60647 United States (map)

Tickets Available

Oaxaca is the most established and most well known mezcal producing region in all of Mexico, but it's far from the only place where mezcal is made. Agave spirits production streches all across Mexico, and each set of traditions results in uniquely different beverages, each reflective of its people and place. Some of these products can be certified as mezcal, while others are prevented by their geography from using that protected term. All of these traditions intertwine to paint a perfect picture of Mexico as a whole: showing how diverse landscapes and distinctly unique cultures come together.

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.
