As the leaves turn and the air chills, we at Passport Destilados find ourselves reflecting on a week that was as heartwarming as it was exhilarating. From honoring heroes to fostering community spirit, let me take you on a journey through our vibrant week.
A Toast to Thanksgiving and Giving Back
Our week kicked off with an event that truly set the tone for the festive season. The wonderful ladies of @iwcmexicocity brought us into the Thanksgiving spirit, reminding us all to count our blessings, chase our dreams, and, most importantly, celebrate our successes together. Their enthusiasm was infectious, and their message, a reminder to bask in the warm glow of gratitude. We eagerly await the IWC Bazar on November 15th, a gathering that promises to be as meaningful as it is joyful.
Swinging for Heroes
Veteran's Day weekend saw us at the Joe's Barrera Veterans Golf Tournament at Superstition Golf Club. It was an honor to contribute to a cause close to our hearts – honoring the valiant souls who have served our nation. Amidst the greens and the gentle swing of golf clubs, we sampled our finest spirits and enjoyed the company of Fumar Cigars, all in the spirit of supporting our veterans. It was a day of camaraderie, remembrance, and, of course, a touch of friendly competition.
A Week of Diverse Engagements
As the week unfolded, our team's versatility shone through. Covering three events in Phoenix and another in Mexico City, we embraced the essence of Passport Destilados: making a positive impact through our presence.
In Mexico City, we were part of the International Women's Club of Mexico City’s Quarterly Social, where we supported women's charities through spirit tastings and bottle sales. This event resonated deeply with our mission to impact lives positively.
Phoenix was a whirlwind of activity. From private tastings and corporate events to planning meetings for the Spirits of Mexico Festival, we demonstrated our commitment to excellence. The highlight? Our Mango Paleta cocktail at the Spirits of Mexico Festival planning meeting, a hit that landed our Riablo Spiced Pineapple Sotol a spot on the festival's mezcal menu.
Dancing for Life and Remembering Loved Ones
The "Latinos Contra el Cancer – Baile por la Vida" event was a poignant reminder of the power of community. Here, we showcased our mixology prowess, introducing a special bottle of Diamante Rose Tequila and selections from Costa de Oro Winery. This event, set against the backdrop of Día de los Muertos, was a heartfelt tribute to those affected by cancer.
The week culminated in a touching ceremony at St. Mary's Basilica, honoring the memory of Jimmie Muñoz, Sr., and Michael Muñoz, Jr., relatives of our Founder & CEO. It was a day that reminded us of the legacies that continue to inspire our work and our community.
Looking Ahead with Gratitude
At Passport Destilados, we carry the spirit of reverence in everything we do, from honoring artisanal agave distillation traditions to celebrating our rich Latino and Chicano heritage. Your support fuels our journey, and we are excited to share more of our adventures with you. Stay tuned for the vibrant happenings at the upcoming Spirits of Mexico Festival on December 2nd and 3rd at Heritage Square.
As we step into the festive season, we're reminded of the strength and warmth of our community. Here's to many more moments of joy, reflection, and connection. Thank you for being part of our journey. 🥃✨
