      Spirits of Mexico Festival - Main Tasting Event

      The Spirits of Mexico celebrates the art of distilling agave spirits and hosts best-selling authors and critics, top mixologists, brand ambassadors and master distillers from world-renowned and new-to-market brands. Begun in San Diego eight years ago, the event has featured more than 150 brands and over 400 styles of tequila, liqueurs and mixers in a refined, fun and responsible environment.

      The main tasting event along with a silent auction will take place Thursday, July 12 at Zocalo, 358 W. Ontario St. The forces behind the major spirit brands, the master distillers, as well as mezcaleros, tequileros, mixologists and ambassadors will all meet to share their skills, experience and, of course, their agave spirits. Seminars will also be available for guests to learn about the history and culture of each spirit, current trends in the spirits industry and appropriate tasting techniques.

      All proceeds from these events will benefit the Sky Ranch Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting troubled youth since 1961.

      Cost: VIP tickets to the Zocalo main tasting event are $60 in advance, and include early entrance at 6:30 p.m., special agave-infused cuisine, gift bags for the first 100 reservations and admittance to all seminars. Tickets for general admission, starting at 7:30 p.m., are $45 and $10 per seminar.
