Enjoy An Immersive Craft Tequila, Mezcal, Taco, Tapas & Cocktail Party

Explore the incredible - and growing - world of craft tequila and mezcal at this extraordinary, curated tasting of dozens of premium blanco, reposado, anejo, and extra anejo sipping tequilas, top-shelf mezcals, premium wine, and tequila-based cocktails.  All this will be paired with scratch-made, artisan tacos, and Latin American tapas.

This sublime tasting will deepen and enrich your understanding of highly-regarded sipping tequilas originating from Jalisco, where the majority of tequila is made, and several other states in Mexico authorized to produce it.  In addition, an expertly curated selection of brilliant mezcals will be available for sampling purposes.

A premium selection of wine from Italy, Virginia, Oregon, and California will be available for wine enthusiasts.  And there will be live music for a cool, relaxed vibe.

We're devoted to properly educating you about the drinks you taste, which is why we insist that every beverage at Tequilabamba is poured by knowledgeable representatives - whether they be distilled spirits experts, mixologists, distributor representatives, proprietors, or experienced volunteers - capable of explaining about the drinks they are serving you.

Tequila enthusiasts, novice tequila and mezcal drinkers, wine and cocktail lovers, and foodies will thoroughly enjoy this event.
