The Spirits of Mexico Festival, which is already an annual event in San Diego and New York, came to Chicago for the first time this week. It kicked off Wednesday with a tequila tasting and dinner at Adobo Grill; Thursday night was the main event, a tasting of tequilas and mezcals from about ten different distillers at Zocalo. Most were sampling their silver (aged less than two months), reposado (aged between two months and a year), and añejo (aged between one to three years) tequilas; a few also had an extra añejo (aged more than three years), and one focused on flavored spirits (along with regular tequila). After the jump, some favorites.
