15 years bringing the best of Mexico to Europe!
2019 has formally begun for the bar and beverages industry. Besides our participation in ProWein in Dusseldorf we are pleased to invite our partners to our stand in Viva Agave! This is a French festival created to promote Mexican spirits and products made out of our beloved agave.
In the same way that we value the opportunity to meet with our current and future partners in the big fairs around Europe, we cherish the efforts of those that want to foster a strong and independent industry of the agave-based spirits.
Visit our booth in Viva Agave!

After a short stop in San Francisco CA he landed in Guadalajara MX in 2007 to start his agave and tequila quest. He is been there since. He now makes sure to advocate what Tequila Fortaleza does and how it does it, in various markets across the globe.
The agave spirits industry is growing, rapidly, and every year there are more brands arriving to the shelves. In order to help consumers to find the tastiest products and due to the fact that there was no “A” Agave Spirits Competition that made difference between different categories or agave sorts, AliasSmith launched the Agave Spirits Award in 2014. The competition attracts the foremost experts in agave spirits to a few days long session of blind tastings. The Agave Spirits Awards is a periodic event. Next competition will be in December 2018.

During the last 10 years, AliasSmith has organized more than 30 expert trips to Mexico for professionals. The AliasSmith Expert Trips are for professionals in the spirits industry from all over Europe that want to gain a clear insight into the Mexican spirit and gastronomical wonder.
During our trips, that last between 12 – 14 days, we visit distilleries, plantations, the best bars and restaurants and the regulatory authorities. We meet with the foremost leaders of the industry and experience the phenomenal ambiance of Mexico. The AliasSmith Expert Trips are always composed by small groups in order to arrange close meetings with the brand owners and producers. The focus is knowledge and unique experiences opening doors few people know exist. The AliasSmith Expert Trips are ambitious and we cover several regions and cities in order to learn as much as possible about the different appellations of origin. A spirits’ expert is always leading the trip and making sure everybody gets out the best of the experience.
