Educational Seminars

3:00PM - 4:30PM Let the Spirit Guide You – Tequila Deconstructed & Reconstructed

There's no mistaking agave distillates are unique. From the soil to the minerals, from the agave to the rain to the natural yeasts, each tequila takes on characteristics imparted by Mother Nature.

From the first planting to the final bottle, every step of tequila’s production process influences the aromatic nuances and the flavor that you and I enjoy. Join us as we deconstruct those flavors through smell, taste and hand-crafted cocktails.

This interactive course will showcase two bartenders and their interpretations of tequila’s prowess, both sipped neat and in cocktails.

Your hosts for this event are Jaime Salas, Milagro Tequila Ambassador; Raphael Reyes, of Melibea; Chris Hudnall and Camille Austin of Hakkasan.

These men and women are passionate about tequila in their every day lives and careers. This is an incredible opportunity for them to join together and share that passion for agave with you. Don’t miss it!
