Se llama mezcal

Bathing the streets of New York with mezcal

What an amazing day we had at House of Yes in Bushwick, Brooklyn celebrating Mexican Independence Day! The sun came out and the spirit of Mexico permeated every nook and cranny. It was a sold out event (thank you!) and we couldn’t have asked for a better crowd to celebrate all things Mexican in a Bottle.

In addition to the more than 140 expressions of agave distillates, we also had incredible food from Claro, Oxomoco, Rosa Mexicano, Guadalupe Inn, Mesa Azteca, and La Loncheria who featured cocktails fueled by Uruapan Charanda, El Buho, Montelobos, Peloton, and Vago. La Loba Cantina also did a pop-up and featured two delicious cocktails highlighting the sweet and savory flavors of mezcal. Tess Rose Lambert led raicilla and sotol deep dive talks and tastings. Digital Guaracha kept the energy high with their mix of cumbia, boleros, ranchera, and occasional cries of Viva Mexico!

As if that was not enough, we had wonderful wares from Tuyo NYC, Destiny Aprons, Merci Mercado, Xilli, and an onsite bottle shop with Duke’s Liquor Box.

A very special thanks to Panorama Mezcal for all of its support, La Loncheria for hosting the after party, Harry Dutton of Dutton Photography for capturing the event, and of course to House of Yes for giving us a home for Mexico in a Bottle.
