Enstrom Tasting Series: Mezcal Tasting and Film Screening
October 26 @ 6:30 pm MDT
The Denver Press Club’s Enstrom Tasting Series returns with a very special mezcal tasting and screening of Stephen Werk’s Sons of Mezcal.
Mezcal is more than an intoxicating spirit. It is the sacred link that binds modern-day mezcaleros to their ancestors. Sons of Mezcal transports you into this living history, as it follows four families passing their traditions on to the next generation.
Sons of Mezcal highlights the lives of four families from four different villages in Oaxaca; The Cortés, Vásquez, Méndez, and Parada families. Casa Cortés works with 17 different families in 16 different regions for the production of its mezcals. Several of the individuals in the film are members of the Cortés family, while the other featured mezcaleros are from their own families. However, all the families featured in the documentary work together as part of a tightly-knit community of mezcal producers that provide the foundations for the El Jolgorio, Nuestra Soledad, and Agave de Cortés brands of mezcal.
Join us for a tasting of Nuestra Soledad and Agave de Cortés mezcals accompanied by a chicken mole dinner and a Q&A with the filmmaker, Stephan Werk.
