Mezcal Amarás Tasting
Recently, I was fortunate to have been invited to a Mezcal Amarás tasting at San Francisco’s La Urbana’s Garage hosted by CEO Santiago Suarez. I was beyond excited since I’m a huge Mexican Food and Cocktail lover (who doesn’t LOVE a good Margarita). What better way to spend an afternoon than learning about Mezcal Amarás while enjoying some delicious Mexican food and meeting some new people.
You’re probably wondering, what is Mezcal Amarás? It is hand-crafted by a Master Mezcalier in the town of San Juan del Río in Oaxaca, Mexico. Mezcal Amarás reflects 400 years of traditional production techniques and is double-distilled and handmade with 100% Espadín Agave from Mexico. Winner of a 2013 Gold Medal from the Beverage Tasting Institute and a 2012 Great Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial Bruxelles. Mezcal Amarás is made from ingredients of the highest quality.
It was great to hear first hand from CEO Santiago Suarez about the company’s history and their recent launch in the US in December of 2014. As you can tell, I fell in love with the Mezcal Amarás both as a sipping liquor and mixed into the delicious Margarita. Look for Mezcal locally in liquor stores as well as restaurants and if you see it I recommend trying it. I imagine you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!!
