The word is out from the Polished Palate company. Its 3rd annual Spirits of Mexico Tasting Competition will take place in San Diego on September 10 and 11.
"While there are other judging platforms," says Polished Palate owner Dori Bryant, this event "is the first and only such recognized competition for agave spirits in the United States."
The first Polished Palate competition drew 61 brands for judging. Last year's drew 70.
Once again, Jack Robertiello and Robert Plotkin will serve as competition co-hosts. Robertiello, editor of Drinks Inc., just hosted the Polished Palate International Rum Tasting Competition in Tampa, FL. Plotkin is the founder of BarMedia, a publishing company producing texts and training manuals. He has written 15 books on beverage management and mixology.
