Mexico in a Bottle

New York - September 16th, 2018 - SOLD OUT

Mezcal is the embodiment of Mexico. More than just a beverage, it represents more than 500 years of history and culture. But mezcal is also the present. It has enjoyed an enormous resurgence in Mexico and the United States exactly because it’s tied so tightly to Mexico’s traditions. Mezcal’s story isn’t just about alcohol, each bottle contains a piece of Mexican culture, and is a living link to history, tradition, art, and music – life and death all in a bottle.

Mexico in a Bottle is our grand tasting and the largest of its kind in the United States. We are incredibly excited to be back in New York at the House of Yes in Brooklyn, celebrating the cultural icon mezcal on Mexican Independence Day. We will feature more than 100 mezcals as well as incredible bites from local restaurants, cocktails from local bartenders, encounters with incredible personalities in the mezcal world, a tiendita, and much more. Get your tickets today!

Check out a video to get a sense for what Mexico in a Bottle is all about.

Please note that this is a 21 and over event.
