What you'll do

Mezcal is a spirit on the rise. It has been finding its way onto back bars and spirit libraries of top bars all over the world. Even still, it remains a little understood distillate. Las Almas Rotas owner Shad Kvetko will take you on a guided tour of the history, production techniques, and cultures behind it. You won’t need any luggage for this trip, only a thirst for knowledge and the spirit itself. You will receive a snack (our house made chips and salsa) and a flight of five mezcales made from five different types of agave (.5oz each pour) along with sangrita and orange slices with sal de gusano. There will be a visual and audio presentation that will delve into all aspects of mezcal and the specific agaves you’re tasting.

I have had a passion for mezcal and the spirits of Mexico for many years. It has taken me all over Mexico and lead me to open the first mezcaleria in Dallas. As a co-owner of Las Almas Rotas, I have traveled to several of the mezcal producing regions and have met and learned from maestros mezcaleros first hand, even participating in the making of our own “mezcal de pechuga”. From the central valleys of Oaxaca to the high sierras of Michoacán and deserts of Durango, these adventures are good stories in and of themselves. But the star of the show is the beautiful spirit that flows forth from the open air “palenques” “tabernas” and “vinatas” (distilleries) scattered throughout Mexico.
