Is Tequila the new gin? Find out in “Discovering Tequila’s Complexities” with Joe Petro, owner of Hair of the Dog Wine & Spirits in Easton on Friday, May 6th from 3-4:30, In-person at Snifters. $30
While all tequila is produced from blue agave plant piñas, not all tequila tastes the same. Like wine, agave spirits gain much of their character from the agricultural environment. For example, highland tequilas exhibit a soft sweetness and floral aroma, in contrast to lowland tequilas that possess herbaceous character and distinctly earthy minerality. For the truly refined palate, Rare Extra Añejo expressions are barrel-aged for at least three years resulting in a complex expression analogous to cognac or whisky … ergo a “sipper’s tequila.”
Now that we’ve transitioned from winter into spring, explore which tequila works best with just lime and salt, paired with sangria, mixed in a cocktail, or served neat. Be prepared to experience flavors and fragrances that are remarkably more sophisticated than college dorm tequila shooters!
