The Polished Palate is proud to be returning to historic Old Town San Diego for its entire Spirits of Mexico Festival in 2010.
The oldest and most comprehensive agave spirits Festival in the United States, this year’s Spirits of Mexico will be held during the 200 th anniversary of Mexico’s independence at the location of California’s birthplace.
The Spirits of Mexico Festival is also supported and endorsed by the City of San Diego, the State of California in association with the Department of Parks & Recreation and the Old Town San Diego Chamber of Commerce and its members.
The Festival is and always has been a celebration of the Distiller’s Art. From its inception, the Festival was designed to take place around Mexican Independence Day, to honor the generations of Master Distillers & Blenders whose art and soul exists in every luscious drop.
Master Distillers & Blenders, Authors, Tequileras, Tequileros, Mixologists, Aficionados & Ambassadors of world-renown and new-to-market brands will all meet in San Diego in September 2010 to share their skills, experience and, of course, their spirits!
