UNIQUE TEQUILA EXPERIENCE! Explore the Taste of Tequila in Glassware Design image

The Museum of Distilled Spirits' Assistant Director of Tequila and Agave Distillates, Juan Bernardo Torres Mora, invites you join him (virtually) in the beautiful Kristalov showroom located in Guadalajara, Mexico. Tonight he welcomes his honored guest, Mauricio Gonzales, a Kristalov drinkware distributor with professional catador (Mexican tequila and mezcal taster) credentials.

Did you know there is a myriad of glassware designed to enhance and negate various identifiable elements in your tequila? What's THAT all about? Whether you are extremely knowledgeable about the category of tequila or are new to tequila's sublime experience, this is a rare opportunity to discover what tequila tastes like in different glasses - and you can try this with us from home with your own glasses. The majority of design credit for the glasses you will see tonight can be attributed to the renowned Maestra Catadora, Ana María Romero.

Perhaps you will discover some of your own glassware works perfectly well for you, or perhaps you will enjoy your tequila from an unexpected glass...or perhaps you'll be inspired to try tequila from an entirely different shaped glass than you ever expected. Perhaps you'll even want to UP your home bar game with new glassware after exploring how the shape of the glass you're drinking from impacts the taste.

You will see the types of glasses professional tequila tasters developed to match the varying profiles of tequila in comparison to the more popular variety of wine glassware, the inspiration for tequila glasses. This is a highly engaging, interactive workshop. Line up some different glasses from your home collection and add your choice of either a single profile of tequila or one each of a blanco, a reposado, and an anejo and let's play BEST MATCH TEQUILA GLASS!
