Did you know that tequila is unique to just one country in the world? While Champagne is unique to France, Tequila is legally produced only in Mexico. Tequila, like wine, has many levels of taste, aging, complexity and cost. Its impact on Mexico can be measured in reputation, national pride and financial importance, exporting $4.3 billion worth in 2017 to $9.9 billion in 2021. Whether you are a non-drinker or a Tequila aficionado, you’ll enjoy this party. You will get a historical and cultural perspective as you learn about tequila from conception to process from “tequila educator” Mark Goodrich, a world traveler and frequent visitor to Mexico. You will also taste several categories of tequila, some tequila-enhancing appetizers, AND sample some ‘Tequila relatives.” Sounds intriguing! As you drink tequila out of an interesting tasting glass for you to keep, you will participate in an interactive review and discussion as you informally rate your tastings. At the end of the party, you will have an opportunity to bid on a bottle of tequila. As an added bonus, you will learn some interesting travel information for those who want to experience tequila at its origin.
