Last Saturday, October 10th, 2oz Miami Bar Magazine hosted a private tasting event at La Santa Taqueria, featuring CHAWAR Andean agave. A high altitude raw agave spirit from Ecuador, harvested by a group of indigenous women who maintain the ancestral tradition of collecting the sweet swap of the Agave. The guests were able to taste Chawar Blanco and Reposado, the first two expressions harvested by the “Mishkita” cooperative lead and operated by women, and double distilled in Yaroqui, Ecuador. Co-founder Eliot Hogan delighted all attendees not only with the history of his product but also surprised everyone with 2 new expressions that have not yet been officially launched on the market, Mezcalin and Rosado (a Reposado aged in red wine barrels for 1 year). In addition, everyone received a complimentary Artisanal mask from Ecuador as a souvenir. After tasting the delicious dishes of La Santa Taqueria, participants finished the soiree with special cocktails featuring CHAWAR on the Citadel Rooftop.
