THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Don’t let that frozen margarita on the drink special menu be your only tequila guide. Here’s a fun way to take your tequila journey to the next level.

So, here’s an odd comparison. Think potato chips. Plain, ridges, BBQ, salt & vinegar, thin, kettle. They all taste different, right? Tequila is no different. As the most recognized spirit in Mexico, tequila has been produced for thousands of years, but it’s more complex than you might expect.

Master Distillers are profoundly serious about the quality and process for making fine quality craft agave spirits. The wide variety of offerings is expansive, crafted from a unique form of succulent to make mezcal, sotol, and avila, in addition to tequila.

Guests wet their palettes enjoying tastings of gold, silver (also known as blanco and plata), barrel-aged selections of reposado, añejo, and extra añejo tequilas, plus mezcal, sotol, avila and even fun, flavor-infused selections and custom cocktails.
