Cocktail Competition

Win a trip to Mexico!

For the last five years, we have sent a bartender from the Pacific Northwest and a (super lucky) person of their choosing for a tequila tour in Mexico…It’s year six of the Northwest Tequila Fest, and we are SO excited to hosting another round of competition, another year of amazing cocktails from the best bartenders in the Pacific Northwest, and send another winner on a kick-ass tour in Tequila with Experience Tequila! This year, we are excited to be sending the winner to the coveted Day of the Dead Tour*, a once-in-a-lilfetime experience!

About the trip

Experience TequilaEl Dia de los Muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday with origins going back before the Spanish Conquest. Departed loved ones and ancestors are celebrated in typically festive Mexican style – with vibrant colors, Tequila, mariachi music, food, and folks art including the famous, grinning “sugar skulls.” Based in the town of Tequila, we will tour four very different tequila distilleries: large, small, modern, traditional and in-between. You will learn each process and taste the best that these distilleries have to offer. We will also visit the Tonalá workshop of Hipólito Gutiérrez, the world-renowned glass blower. Guests will watch (and possibly even participate) as bottles are hand-blown. Tour Includes:
    • Ground Transportation
    • Lodging
    • All Meals list
    • Access to 1000 agave lovers from all over the world
    • Guides and interpreters
    • 4 distillery visits and tastings
    • Visit to artisan glass workshop
    • Traditional Mexican fiesta
    • Walking tour of the colonial heart of Guadalajara
    • T-shirt, shot glass and other goodies
    • Tequila reception upon arrival
There will also be a Dia de los Muertos party at the end of the tour, which you will want to bring a costume for… and perhaps a fresh liver. We would tell you more, but it would spoil the surprise! We can tell you this: it will be an unforgettable trip.
