Mezcal Master Class with Victor Pérez of Alipús

Come join us for a Mezcal Master Class (and mezcal samples) with special guest Victor Pérez of Alipús.

We love Alipús here at Sin Gusano - in fact last year we drank London dry of the Alipús range! This year, with new batches in stock, the brand's international ambassador is hosting a very special masterclass for us. 

The topic will be: ‘Denominations of Origen: when can an agave spirit be called a mezcal?’

Master Class from 7pm. Bar open from 5pm.

Agave: Food, drink & fibers for the body, mind & spirit
Sep

7:00 PM19:00

Agave: Food, drink & fibers for the body, mind & spirit

Talk starts 7pm (free entry). 

Mezcal bar open as usual from 5pm.

Special guest Samuel Bautista Lazo is a Zapotec weaver from Teotitlan del Valle in Oaxaca. During this presentation Sam will offer a glimpse into the wisdom of the Zapotec culture by telling us how the agave provides nutritious food, and the many ways Mezcal creates beautiful social moments that bonds the community in his village. And for those with the ears to listen, he will explain how the thin, yet strong agave fibers are woven into stories and teachings that bind the body to the spirit.

He will also be exhibiting a selection of agave fiber rugs and wool rugs that depict the agave and other Zapotec symbols, all of which will be available for purchase.

Don't miss this unique opportunity!

Come and spend a fun evening away from unwanted noise, chores and netflix! Anne-Laure and Cloud are yet again putting together an evening of freestyle drawing. For inspiration, we'll have dozens of cute little potted cacti, (the perfect model to get creative or silly with!).

And what better place to host this than Sin Gusano, the agave loving Bar & Taqueria. You are very welcome to bring your own snacks to keep you if you are peckish. Drinks available for purchase throughout the evening.

What’s included:

  • A mini cactus to take home with you

  • paper, boards and art materials  (also feel free to bring your own materials if you prefer to use something other than oil pastels, colouring pens, charcoal and pencils.)

The venue will be open from 6.15pm and the drawing event 6.45-9.45pm

Lovers of any quality artisanal products (especially booze) will appreciate this evening where you will get to experience rare and unique mezcals seldom found in the UK.
