Tequila Classes at Salena’s Mexican Restaurant

Tequila Classes at Salena’s Mexican Restaurant

Join us once a month for our tequila tasting class. Each month we will explore different themes in the expansive world of tequila. This is a great opportunity to learn about the process of making tequila, different brands, or just an opportunity to try a new line in a laid back, friendly, environment. Your tequila tour guide, Matt Metras, will guide you through the world of tequila, from the cultivation of the agave to final product in the glass in front of you.

Each month we’ll taste 6-7* different tequilas, discuss them in depth, and learn the ins and outs of agave. Does tequila make you more hungover than other liquors? Is tequila actually made from cactus? And what about the worm? Find out the answers to these questions and more.

Grab dinner before or after for this perfect date night activity, grab some friends and come on down after work, or just bring yourself. We’ll have chips and salsa to snack on during the class. Space is limited for each session, so make your reservation today using the form below.

We strive to make the class as interactive as possible, so if there and any topics you want added to the agenda for your class, let us know when you sign up.

We can also schedule a private class, up to 12 people. Perfect for a bachelor/bachelorette party, corporate team building, or just a fun time with friends. For information on a private party, please email tequila@salenas.com.

*½ oz pours, tequilas are subject to change based on availability at the time of the class. Each class is approximately 90 minutes.

**Classes are non-refundable within 72 hours of class date.
