You’d be hard pressed to find a better combo in the foodie and drink world than tequila and tacos. Well Añejo looks to merge the two once again for their popular For the Love of Agave tasting party.
Taking place on Monday September 11th from 7pm-10 pm at Añejo Philly (1001 N 2nd St.), this special tequila event will showcase 80+ rare and unique tequilas and mezcals from 30+ producers.
Guests will get to interact and learn from experts and brand ambassadors about the production process and techniques of each spirit. Special signature new cocktails will be available for a discounted price and of course the perfect paring of food will also be available via a complimentary guacamole and salsa station to get your dip on plus a taco station with some of Añejo signature favorites.
Guests will also get to enjoy door prizes with a portion of proceeds going to a local charity. Event tickets are on sale on Eventbrite for $65 per person, which includes complimentary tastings, demos and food stations, plus discounted cocktails.
“For the Love of Agave is our way of sharing what we are most passionate about with our community,” said Añejo General Manager Jessica Simms. “The tasting celebration is a fun opportunity to celebrate and sample an array of agave spirits and bring together our local community with something for novices and newbies to experts and aficionados. After selling out the winter event earlier this year in record time, we decided to expand and add a fall event with even more producers and expressions to try. We are excited to see this signature event grow – and to offer one of the most in-depth tequila and mezcal events in the region.”
She added, “Whether you are a seasoned pro looking for that new favorite agave spirit to sip on, or a newbie trying to get back into the agave spirit world since that last bad hangover from college, we got you covered.”
For the Love of Philly Agave Tasting Party is now a semi-annual and tradition in Northern Liberties where hundreds of tequila and mezcal lovers come together for one night only to celebrate and learn about their favorite spirits. The event started last year in 2022 and grows this year to offer the largest selection yet. There will be over 85+ expressions of agave spirits available to sample from over 30+ from the following brands:
AND many, many more to be announced.
On top of samplings, guests will learn from experts and brand ambassadors about the production process, and techniques of each spirit. Each ticket comes with complimentary guacamole and salsa stations, as well as a taco station (chicken, pork, cauliflower) created by Chef Ricardo Camacho.
Additionally, there will be special cocktails for the night offered at only $6 each, including a Paloma (Libelula Tequila, fresh lime, grapefruit soda) and Blanco Margarita (El Jimador Blanco Tequila, agave, fresh lime), with others TBD. Beers, sodas and topo chico sparkling water will also be available to purchase.
During the night there will be door prizes and a portion of proceeds being donated to help a local charity – that will be announced before the event.
