Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of world-famous Tequila by the hand of a local who LOVES it.
There are many myths, and some misconceptions surrounding this agave distillate. Someone had to do the ¨hard work¨ of traveling to Tequila -Mezcal and Raicilla- producing regions, seat down with the Maestros Tequileros, Mezcaleros, and Raicilleros (the last two are also agave distillates), walk the agave filled landscapes, visit many distilleries, have a wonderful and engaging talk with a young man who lives in Oaxaca (in the soutwestern region of Mexico) that has had given classes -in California- to certify Mezcal lovers to become Certified Mezcaliers, and of course the even more dragging job of sipping, sipping, and more sipping. (giggles)
Let's share the joy of sipping on a divine libation. The agave is a magical plant that is the embodiment of a Goddess known as Mayahuel.
Did you know that the Blue Agave can take from 8 to 10 years to reach maturity and when it's harvested that is it for the plant.? Unlike grapes, which can be harvested for many years, the Agave must be taken completely off the ground. So it gives its precious life to make a magical elixir for the joy of 'men'.
Come join me in this fascinating journey. For 1.5hrs we'll discover -and rediscover- 4 different 100% Blue Agave Tequilas. Choose from 3 lineups: Premium for Beginners, Platinum, and Diamond.
Please let us know each time you come back so we can switch the regular line up for you to try something knew each time you join us 😉
Tequila Tastings take place in the open patio of a fine dining restaurant built in a hacienda style located in Old Town overlooking a beautiful church, and under the shade of a mango tree.
On rainy days we'll sip our tequilas inside overlooking the patio.
