The GOODS from Kale & Nori

Vancouver, BC | On January 07 2013, Kale & Nori proprietors Bartender/Sommelier Lauren Mote and Chef Jonathan Chovancek will travel to Mazatlán, Mexico, home of the European-style distillery, Onilikan. While touring local the Sinaloa plantations, markets and agricultural centers, Mote and Chovancek (the team behind the “Bittered Sling Extracts” line of Canadian bitters) will host an event at the distillery, “Exploring Onilikan Flavours” featuring their award-winning Agave and Mango Liqueurs and Aguardientes. Onilikan distillates will be paired with local and seasonal fare, with Chovancek’s signature Canadian impressions, while Mote pairs avant-garde cocktails that follow the same suit. Joining the trip is Bartender Marc Smolinski, winner of the Onilikan Cocktail Competition (August 2012).

Manuel Campos, Managing Partner at Onilikan said “It’s an honour to have Lauren, Jonathan and Marc visiting Mazatlan and to be able to share the full Onilikan experience with them. They are an important representation of the international community of cocktail and cuisine experts and are pioneers on the use of Onilikan products in their drinks and in their dishes. We can’t wait to taste their original Onilikan food & cocktail creations and to learn more about their experience in using our unique line of Mexican spirits”.

About Onilikan

Onilikan was founded in 2011, with deep Canadian and Mexican roots and the vision of creating a unique line of Mexican spirits using a blend of Mexican and European artisanal traditions to capture the true essence of locally grown agave and mango. Using produce sourced exclusively from Sinaloa province, every bottle of Onilikan is fermented, distilled, packaged and distributed at the brand’s distillery in the heart of the Zona Dorada, Mazatlán. Onilikan was the recipient of two medals at the 2012 World Spirits Competition in San Francisco, including a gold medal for its signature agave Aguardiente. Onilikan is proud Associate Member of the Canadian Professional Bartender’s Association (CPBA).
