Mezcal Masterclass Series - Flying Solo

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


Mezcal can be super overwhelming. Dozens of different names and varieties make keeping track of what to expect a real challenge. Our last class focused on agaves that can be placed into groups, and this session focuses on agave types that stand alone.

Some agave species have a lot less biological variation than others, and thus it's easier to know what to expect out of mezcales made from them. We'll be looking at Agave marmorata,convalliscupreata, and rodacantha, a.k.a. tepextate, jabali, papalote, and mexicano respectively.

Join Quiote and Todos Santos's beverage director and agave expert Jay Schroeder monthly mezcal 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 mezcal and its production methods.

The intimate class will be limited to 20 people. Tickets are $45

Beginners welcome!
