The Tastings

Tequila is so much more than a shot. A characterful and sophisticated spirit, it is best consumed at leisure. During the Agave Sessions you will sip and savour on a selection of fine tequilas, its smokier more complex cousin, mezcal and a selection of lesser known Mexican spirits; getting to know the different classifications of agave spirits from blanco to reposado...and beyond.During the session you will also enjoy classic Mexican cocktails, such as the Margarita and Paloma, accompanied by a lunch of Mexican food.

The Ageing

Now you have mastered the complexity of agave spirits, you will move onto ageing your own tequila. You will receive a 70cl bottle of Herradura Blanco and a small barrel made from charred American White Oak that was made on Herradura’s cooperage in Mexico specifically for this course. Following expert guidance from our hosts - you can take your tequila away to rest at home, giving you the freedom to experiment and age to your own personal taste.
