An Evening in Mexico: A Tequila & Mezcal Tasting

  • Mad Priest Coffee & Cocktails 719 Cherry Street Chattanooga, TN USA (map)

Join us on a little adventure south to learn about the wonders of tequila and mezcal! By law, Tequila must be made in Mexico, and it's made by distilling the fermented juices of the Weber blue agave plant with water. We'll be learning more about the incredible process behind this distinct spirit, and tasting several tequilas and mezcals together.

This class includes:

  • Taste a range of different tequilas and mezcals (6 tastings)

  • Finish with tequila/mezcal cocktail of your choice

  • Light bites to accompany spirits

Seating is limited.
