The Spirit of Agave in Mexico

Garfield Park Conservatory | 300 N. Central | Chicago | 773-638-1766
June 13, 2018
Free, 6-7:00PM

For hundreds of years, the agave plant has been feeding and housing rural Mexico. Learn how from Jay Schroeder and Lou Bank, two gringos who spend time in these communities and who have seen how the boom in agave and agave spirits are leaving an imprint on the rural Mexican communities where they are made. They’ll explain how agave is used to make spirits like tequila, mezcal, raicilla, and bacanora, and how the success of those spirits is changing lives in Mexico — sometimes for good, sometimes not so good.
