THE UNDERGROUND SPEAKEASY HOSTS CANTERA NEGRA TEQUILA TASTING WITH FOUNDER, MASTER DISTILLER DON ALBERTO BECHERANO, ON APRIL 28
WHAT: The Underground at The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, invites guests to join an exclusive Cantera Negra Tequila Tasting featuring a decadent chocolate pairing from award-winning JMA Chocolates.
Cantera Negra tequila begins with blue agave grown in the rich, volcanic soil of Jalisco, Mexico before it is double distilled and elevated to an ultra-premium spirit. At this event, Founder and Master Distiller Don Alberto Becherano, along with his son, Master Blender Dan Becherano, will lead guests through an exploration of four Cantera Negra tequilas, from the clean, unaged Cantera Negra Silver to the smooth, oak-aged Extra Anejo. Don Alberto’s personal connection to tequila began as a hobby, but he has perfected his product over the last 40 years. From a fabled elixir shared with friends to an award-winning spirit brand, Cantera Negra retains its quality ingredients and charm. The Becherano family is synonymous with Cantera Negra and their specially appointed family tasting panel tastes and approves each batch.
The tasting flight will feature the following tequilas:
- Cantera Negra Silver
- Cantera Negra Reposado
- Cantera Negra Anejo
- Cantera Negra Extra Anejo

ABOUT THE UNDERGROUND
The Underground is an immersive Prohibition history experiential exhibition, featuring a distillery, speakeasy and private VIP room located in the basement of The Mob Museum and sponsored by Zappos. Its custom-made, copper-pot still, dubbed “Virginia Still” after mobster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel’s notorious girlfriend Virginia Hill, has a capacity of 60 gallons and can serve up to 250 750-mL jars of moonshine per week. The Underground also brews and serves craft beer onsite. Artifacts from the 1920s and 1930s on display tell the intriguing story of the Prohibition era, which not only saw a proliferation of bootlegged booze and the meteoric growth of organized crime outfits, but also had a profound, lasting impact on society and culture. Complimentary entrance to The Underground is granted at the secret side entrance to visitors who know the correct password, which is published daily on Instagram Stories @MobMuseum_Underground.
