Justin Timberlake good for tequila? The Gentrification of Mexican spirits.
Moderated by Bill Esparza with Marcela Valladolid (Food Network’s Mexican Made Easy, owner of Hacienda de la Flor tequila, CBS Great Baking Competition), Raul Yrastorza (Las Perlas, mezcal bar) and Cecilia Rios Murrieta (La Nina del Mezcal)
As agave based spirits from all over Mexico–tequila, raicilla, bacanora, mezcal, and sotol–are literally pouring into the United States, yet the spotlight still shines on the celebrity based brand. Patron was the first traditional Mexican brand owned by a celebrity (John Paul Dejoria), and now at a time when agave aficionados are seeking rare agaves and artisanal productions, a new wave of movie and rock stars are getting in on the agave game. We will discuss the future of Mexico’s spirits and the various interests over sips of mezcal and tequila. Salud!
