Salón Rosario’s name was inspired by the Mexican writer and poet, Rosario Castellanos (1925 – 1974) who is widely considered to be the first Mexican Feminist.
Historically in Mexico, women weren’t allowed to enter traditional cantinas, sometimes there were little separate family rooms provided for them, so we felt it would be significant to name a place dedicated to the appreciation of the highest quality spirits, after such an important female figure. We love her writing and the impact she made on Mexican culture.
Tu sabor se anticipa entre las uvas
que lentamente ceden a la lengua
comunicando azúcares íntimos y selectos.
~ Extract from ‘En el filo del gozo‘ by Rosario Castellanos
