Saturday October 17th! The first of many chocolate maker's series hosted by Primo Botanica at the 518 Craft tasting room. This socially distanced event will include two sessions: one at 7pm, one at 8pm. Reservations only. (EDIT: 8pm has sold out)  Flor Heras of Reina Negra Chocolate from Oaxaca, Mexico will be visiting for one time only offering a taste of her home city.  Flor will be offering a flight of chocolate including two Reina Negra chocolates and one Primo Botánica chocolate (with beans also sourced from Mexico). Included in this tasting is a free flight of three mezcals from  to pair with each chocolate. Mezcal is a delicious smoked distilled spirit made from agave (similar to tequila).  Real Minero is considered by many to be one of the world’s finest Mezcal producers. The family has been making mezcal for several generations in Santa Catarina Minas, and they’re known both in Mexico and abroad for creating some of the best bottles available.  All pairings will come with water to cleanse the pallet in between tastings. Your tasting will include a tasting card and the option to buy Reina Negra chocolate (not regularly available in the United States).  We will be offering space to a maximum of 10 people for each session and will be doing the tasting outside under tents if we are lucky with weather.  Also, stay tuned for a very important and exciting announcement from Primo Botánica!Choose local pickup at check out (make sure the state is set to New York) 🙂
