About this Event
Join us as we present a virtual program platform featuring a Masterclass and Behind the Bar series of interactive talks centered on the world of agave spirits. Your ticket will guarantee you a space at all or any of our Zoom webinars for the month of June.
We’ll email you reminders and links to the talks each week.
About the programs
Masterclass features authoritative personalities from all over the agave industry, from brand owners and ambassadors, to educators and consultants. Each session does a deep dive into its theme, which may be a region, new products, food pairing, or a brand story during a 45 minute presentation, with time for Q&A afterwards. Designed to be digestible and informative, these conversations are a way to plug in to the agave community even when we can’t share a copita in person.
Behind the Bar features talks and demos with the people who have made mezcal such an integral part of our bar experience – Bartenders. With unique perspectives on trends, and an intimate understanding of how to frame and highlight the complex flavors of agave, they are invaluable sources of information, and often times an absolute pleasure to chat with. The 30-45 minute presentation, followed by Q&A, feature a range of topics from some of the best agave-centric bartenders in the field.
