February 24th 2017 / Tequila and mezcal taster #1

The Oxford Mexican Society was very pleased to host their first official tequila and mezcal tasting evening. Tequila and mezcal are both traditional Mexican drinks made from agave plants, which are native to Mexico.

In this event, we offered a sampler with 6 different types of tequila and mezcal, accompanied by some tasty treats brought straight from Mexico.

Our fellow Mexican Society Secretary, César Espinoza, also gave a brief talk on how tequila and mezcal are made, and how to tell whether they are good quality!
