Mezcal – It’s history, production, and nuances – Presented by Alvin Starkman – Oaxaca

January 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


From the Oaxaca Lending Library Web Site:

Back by popular demand…This discussion focuses on teaching about mezcal through explaining its history, current diversity of production methods, and flavor and aroma nuances. Learn why mezcal has the potential to compete with single malt scotch as the most complex spirit in the world, and how it differs from tequila as well as pulque and other traditional Mexican alcoholic beverages. We’ll sample at least 10 types of mezcal made from different agaves, in different parts of Oaxaca, using different distillation techniques.
