Hospitality, and a passionate facilitator of the Seven Grand Whiskey Society, Las Perlas'
Mezcal Collective, and the Rum Society at Caña Rum Bar
Some of the things we cover in
this bourbon-punctuated conversation about flavor and hospitality
- How a
yoga teaching actor with an improv background harnessed his
creative powers to help build one of LA’s most exciting and revered
spirits and cocktail programs.
the Seven Grand whiskey society was formed, and what sorts of
people turn out week after week to sample beautiful spirits from
the US and abroad.
- Pedro’s unique approach to leading people of
all experience levels through the complex and heady world of
to comparatively taste whiskeys with an eye toward how those
spirits were created and which production or aging methods might be
responsible for the flavors in the glass.
thoughts about hospitality, flavor architecture, and raisin
much, much more.
