Wednesday Flight: Holy Smoke, An Introduction to Artisanal Mezcal

Swirl Wine Bar
Getting there
3143 Ponce De Leon St, New Orleans, LA

"All tequila is mezcal, but not all mezcal is tequila" Join us for a guided mezcal tasting with our resident mezcal enthusiast, Hollis Strategier. During our flight on April 3rd, Swirl will transform into a place of exploration that will allow you to expand your knowledge about agave spirits and what makes mezcal unique. We will be presenting a flight of four specially selected expressions from four different mezcaleros. The intention of this event is to educate and give reverence to the complexity and beauty of the Mexican culture through it's most iconic beverage, mezcal. Let us introduce you to wonderful, high end sipping mezcals ($48-$100 per bottle) that will change your perception of the agave plant's products and talk all things agave! If you'd like a little something to snack on with your mezcal, resident cheesemonger Casey Foote will select and present a pairing plate ($10 with flight, $15 without the flight). No standing in line for our Wednesday flights - you sit at a table, we come to you and pour tableside complete with lots of educational info on what you are drinking. The flight of 4 mezcals is $30 - reservations are highly recommended as we can only seat walk-ins if space allows. All mezcals and cheeses are available for purchase to have at Swirl or you can take them to go. You can make your reservations here. Class Policies:-As with all of our tastings and classes we ask that you not wear perfume, cologne or any other strong scents that could interfere with the wine's aromas for you and those around you.-Refunds can be made with a minimum 3 days advance notice. Credit cannot be given towards future classes.
