Wednesday 01 May from 18:00 to 20:00

The well-known Mexican spirit, tequila, has been around for centuries and it will be the focus of this Masterclass. More officially known as America’s Native Spirit, tequila distillers have a stringent set of rules they must abide by. It’s is made from the agave plant, also known as ‘Maguey’ and it looks similar to a cactus. The ripe pina from mature agave plants produces superior tequila as it has more sugar and gives higher yields. Some distillers prefer under-ripe agave, while some favour over-ripe agave. The amount of ripeness influences the nature of the tequila.

We are bringing Australia’s World Class Bartender of the Year 2023 to guide you through a tasting of 5-6 rare and unique tequilas, as you sip you will learn about the history and processes behind this fascinating spirit all while enjoying Mexican bites.

The Masterclass will be part of a week-long celebration for Cinco de Mayo, and the spaces are limited.
