Mexico in a Bottle San Francisco

November 11th

We can hardly believe it ourselves, but this year marks our FIVE year anniversary! We have come along way since that first event when people were just beginning to discover mezcal. This year we celebrate not only mezcal, but all of the other Mexican craft spirits coming into the market because of its success – That includes Mexican rum, liquors, whiskey, and let’s not forget wine and beer. This is a true celebration of everything Mexican in a Bottle.

For those who don’t know what Mexico in a Bottle is — well it’s the biggest agave spirits tasting in the United States but it’s also a celebration of Mexican culture. Just watch this video to get an idea of what you should expect.


For our fifth consecutive year we’re completely sold out. We’ll see all ticket holders Sunday!
