The biggest and baddest mezcal tasting event in the US returns to Washington DC!

Mexico in a Bottle returns to DC for its third year! Join us as we celebrate Mexican craft spirits, food, art and music, at the beautiful Mexican Cultural Institute.

What began as a tribute to mezcal, the embodiment of Mexico, Mexico in a Bottle has evolved to showcase the growing craft beverage scene in Mexico. No longer just an agave driven movement, we now see rum, whiskey, amaros and more making its way to shelves here in the United States. The story of mezcal and these other elixirs isn’t just about alcohol, each bottle contains a piece of Mexican culture, and is a living link to history, tradition, art, and music - life and death all in a bottle.

In addition to the more than 100 mezcals and agave spirits we will also have a variety of other alcoholic beverages that showcase Mexico's traditions and 21st Century innovations. Not to be left out, we will also have incredible bites from local restaurants, cocktails from local bartenders, encounters with incredible personalities in the mezcal world, a tiendita, and much more. Get your tickets today! Please note that this is a 21 and over event.
