The Spirits of Mexico Festival is coming to New York City on May 29th, 2013, and Flavorful World food and drink blog will be there!
Marking the 10th anniversary of its simultaneous launches in New York and California, the festival will stop next month in Chicago before continuing onward to San Diego, the other city of its birth. The fun begins in my old backyard, though, and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful to be on the scene when it does. Sponsored by Olmeca Altos, the Spirits of Mexico Festival will lend some serious flavor to lower Manhattan’s Astor Center, located at 399 Lafayette Avenue, New York, NY.
Yours truly will be live tweeting from this 6pm – 9pm event between samples of tequila, mezcal, bacanora, and other hard spirits traditionally produced throughout beautiful Mexico. Mixing and pouring the love will be a cadre of master distillers, tequileros, and mezcaleros, with distinguished ambassadors from world-renowned labels as well as new-to-market brands on hand to share their knowledge, experience, and dozens of Mexican spirits.
