Mezcal Tasting-Pairing /Fundraiser
The Petaluma Museum Association invites your attendance at our upcoming Mezcal Tasting/Fundraiser.

There's a saying in Oaxaca, Mexico, about mezcal:

"Para todo mal, Mezcal, y para todo bien, también."

"For every ill, Mezcal, and for every good as well."

Mezcal is the cousin of tequila, derived from a different species of the agave plant tequila, and is grown and distilled in a different region: Oaxaca, far to the south of the tequila lands.

It is the marriage of pulque, an intoxicating drink enjoyed by pre-columbian indigenous royalty, and distilling techniques brought by the Spanish conquistadores. It is stronger than tequila and possesses a distinctly smoky quality. New to American palates, mezcal is embraced by adventurous mixologists.

The Petaluma Museum Association is proud to present original pairings of five mezcals with delectable plates created by Amber Balshaw, proprietor of Preferred Sonoma Caterers, whose offerings have delighted those who have attended the PMA's popular Single Malt Scotch Tastings & Food Pairings.

This tasty experience awaits you at the Museum in conjunction with Petaluma's El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) observance. Enjoy your food and drink amid a colorful exhibit of Day of the Dead altars, served by costumed waitstaff, while educated on the spirit's fine points by a mezcal expert. Local retailer Wilibees Wines and Spirits will be donating the mezcal.

Thursday, October 15, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
