Tasting Sessions - El Rayo Tequila

June 6th

Tom & Jack join us for a tequila tasting to introduce their new premium tequila brand, El Rayo on 6th June.

From sipping their first Añejo in Peckham to the agave fields of Jalisco and back again, the pair will discuss their journey in setting up the brand and their vision to add something new to the tequila category that celebrates contemporary Mexico.

They will go through what makes their tequila different and will be introducing their perfect El Rayo serve – the tequila and tonic or T&T. Having only launched the product in May, this will be a unique opportunity to taste one of the first bottles of El Rayo in the UK.

Their tequila is unique in that it uses a combination of highland and lowland agave, which brings out the best from both growing regions. Predominantly highland agaves are used in production which harnesses floral and citrus flavours. This is then anchored by the more peppery and vegetal tones that come through with subtlety from the lowland agaves.

Expect delicate flavours on the nose, a buttery and viscous mouth feel that ends with a gentle yet empowering finish packed full of agave flavour. Join us for a taste of modern Mexico!
