An Afternoon of Mezcal with Jimmy Yeager at Jimmy’s in Aspen

What does a great afternoon look like? For Galavante, it means spending time at Jimmy’s in Aspen with none other than Jimmy Yeager, the mastermind behind Jimmy’s – An American Restaurant & Bar, and Greg Van Wagner, the person in charge of all the beverages at Jimmy’s. And, of course, drinking mezcal!

Mezcal is a mesmerizing Mexican spirit that is a symbol of traditional and artisanal craftsmanship. It is made from the revered agave plant and is distinct from its close cousin, tequila, by its smoky and earthy character, which is a result of its meticulous artisanal production process. Mezcal has a rich history that dates back centuries, and many producers still follow the time-honored techniques of pit-roasting agave hearts and using stone mills for crushing. This labor-intensive process results in a spirit with a complex flavor profile featuring notes of smoke, roasted agave, and an underlying minerality. Mezcal, as a result of its authenticity, has garnered worldwide recognition, making it a significant representation of Mexican culture and a preferred choice for individuals in search of a unique and unforgettable drinking experience.

So, join us on an interesting episode where Jimmy, shares his personal journey into the world of mezcal. He also delivers a captivating lesson on agave plants, explaining how their size significantly impacts the flavor and aroma of mezcal.

In this episode, Galavante’s founder Christine Drinan and Jimmy explore three different mezcals that originate from three distinct agave plants. The focus is on Christine and her experiences with mezcal. It’s surprising to discover how unique each profile is, showcasing the variety within the world of mezcal. They also try wild agave mezcals, which are untamed and uncultivated. This gives them a glimpse of the uncharted heart of this spirit and enhances the experience.
