Want to sample some of the best tequilas ever made? The now-famous Tequila Expo at the Arizona Taco Festival tempts everyone from the novice sipper to seasoned swiller with more than 30 brands pouring over 100 types of tequila.
The 2013 installment of the Arizona Taco Festival and Tequila Expo is set for Oct. 19-20 at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale. The Tequila Expo, however, is noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19 only. Once in the Taco Festival, $20 secures any 10 samples you like in the Tequila Expo.
The final line-up is being firmed up, but last year’s list read like a who’s-who of the tequila world: 1921, Arta, Avion, Cabo Wabo, Casa Noble, Corrido, Don Julio, El Jimador, Herradura, Hornitos, Partida, Patron, the list goes on. The clean, crisp tequilas of El Jimador are some of my favorites, and I was thrilled to see that they’re the presenting sponsor this year.
Tequila fans must check out the Tequila Expo at this year’s Arizona Taco Festival. It’s the best place anywhere to try several varieties at one time – and to find a new favorite. Click here for more information about the event. Salud!
