Agave: The Spirit of a Nation Screening and Tasting

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Agave: The Spirit of a Nation explores the phenomenon of the fastest trending alcohol spirits in the world, Tequila and Mezcal, and the proud families who pass down their distilling secrets and traditions from generation to generation, while protecting their cherished plant against increasing global demand. This expressive documentary takes us to Mexico, where agave harvesting and distilling are richly embedded in the culture of its people, from the alluring red highlands of Jalisco to the rugged mountains of Oaxaca. Discover how one delicate plant can carry the weight of a nation and the people trying to protect it for the future.

Join us for the film, and enjoy a curated mezcal tasting event after the show!
