See if you can distinguish the subtle variations in coloring and flavor profiles between these artisanal tequilas.
You want to sip small amounts very slowly, letting the spirit cover your entire tongue. It helps to lightly suck in a little air when tasting.
Join us on Light Hall Patio for this fun event, and keep track of your favorites. We look forward to hearing which taste, brand and style you preferred and why!
As a special treat, handcrafted clay tequileros from Oaxaca will be available for $5 with your Tasting Ticket.
