About Mexico in a Bottle

*Our 2020 Mexico in a Bottle events are on hiatus until further notice*

What began as an event to tell and celebrate the story of mezcal, Mexico in a Bottle has evolved to showcase the growing craft beverage scene in Mexico. No longer just an agave driven movement, we now see rum, whiskey, botanicals, liqueurs, bitters, wine and beer making their way into the market. The story of mezcal and these other elixirs isn’t just about alcohol, each bottle contains a piece and flavor of Mexican culture, and is a living link to history, tradition, food, art, and music – life and death all in a bottle.

Mexico in a Bottle was founded in 2014 by Mezcalistas. We were inspired to create a grand mezcal tasting partially because we just love mezcal; if you read our blog you already know that, if not it’s time to get started because we’re serious evangelists. 

In 2019 we expanded Mexico in a Bottle to six cities including San Diego, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Washington DC and San Francisco. In 2020 we have events planned in San Diego, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Washington DC and San Francisco.

Since mezcal simply cannot be contained we also organize Mezcal Week, a truly global celebration of everything mezcal which occurs September 8th to 15th.

To find out when we release tickets and when other tastings are announced sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook. We are always open to ideas so feel free to get in contact with thoughts on events, sponsorships, or whatever else is on your mind.
