Alacrán Tequila Event
Sunday, August 28, 2011— 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Mister C's Beach Bistro, Allenhurst, NJ
Alacrán, which means "scorpion" in Spanish, is made at the Tierra de Agaves distillery in Tequila, Jalisco, where they also make Luna Azul and La Certeza. The brand was made by a group of friends in Mexico City, who rebelled against the status quo and created this unconventionally pure white spirit concealed within a matte-black bottle. The special and rubbery (some say velvety) "Soft Touch"bottle finish has a unique texture. The shape was inspired by a canteen crossed with a liquor flask and Its rugged skin makes it the ultimate urban trend. The tequila is absolutely delicious and here's your chance to try it.
