Artisanal Mezcal Event

August 6, 2014
7pm to 10pm
Experience Mezcal founder Clayton Szczech conducts independent mezcal research throughout Mexico, and will host a tasting of non-exported and harder to find mezcals. In addition to tasting four rare spirits, Clayton will present a thorough overview of what mezcal is, where it comes from, recent changes to the Official Mexican Norm (NOM) that governs mezcal production and lay to rest many myths that surround mezcal.

The tasting flight will include four mezcals, carefully chosen to exhibit diversity of agave species, production regions and methods, maestros mezcaleros, aromas and flavors. Some of these mezcals are like none you have ever tasted. There will be a focus on the delicate, floral agave cupreata of the state of Guerrero!

We understand that you might be a little afraid of tequila. Yet here you are, considering going to Northwest Tequila Fest! Perhaps you haven't bought your ticket, or maybe you have, but think you might need a little rundown of the basics before you join us on the 9th. Join Clayton J Szczech of Experience Tequila as he gives you the basics of tequila, from an overview of how it's made, the distilling process, to how to taste (and enjoy) it. The tasting will include light food from Traveler Montlake, and samples of the Tequila Tapatío line, from the revered Distiller Carlos Camarena.
