As a chef I love mezcal and the complexity of flavors. I love participating in Mexico in a Bottle because it is this great opportunity to meet small producers you’d never have a chance to talk to unless you travel to Mexico. And the crowd truly appreciates what is being served, both on the plate and in a glass.

Mezcal: Mexico in a Bottle was founded in 2014 by Susan Coss and Max Garrone who also write 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. We’ve hosted tastings since we started Mezcalistas in 2012, everything from large 1,000 person tastings at Lucha Libre wrestling matches to intimate six person tastings paired with dinners.

But Mexico in a Bottle is our main tasting ranging in size between 200-400 people in cities across the United States. In 2017 we expanded to Washington, D.C.. In 2018 we will be expanding to San Diego and New York City. Since mezcal simply cannot be contained we also organize Mezcal Week, a truly global celebration of everything mezcal which occurs in the second week of November.

We also curate a roving series of mezcal tastings tied to presentations on key issues in the mezcal world called Spirited Conversations. We’ll be bringing Spirited Conversations to a variety of cities in 2018.

“It was great to be in a room with the people who are making the future of mezcal in the US, I really got a sense of where artisanal mezcal is headed and it’s a joy to be a part of it.”
