2017 Tequila Immersion Tours
Don't miss out!
There are three more 2017 tours left in the USBG Tequila Immersion Tours sponsored by Patron! This program offers monthly Educational Tours that offer an in-depth tequila category education!
Here is what some of our past attendees have said about this awesome experience...
I just got back from the Patrón Tequila Immersion Tour. It was an amazing experience. The insight I gained about tequila, its production and how Patrón sustainably integrates with and directly works to benefit the farmers and people in the surrounding communities was invaluable. ~ Adam Freeland
My eyes have been open and my brain and belly have been fed. 'Til next time! Thank you, Chris Spake, for taking such great care of us and sharing the true story of Patron. ~ Joymar Herrin
I'm honestly still reeling from this beautiful trip this past week to the Patrón Hacienda, but thank you so much to Patrón and the United States Bartenders' Guild - USBG for this incredible opportunity. From the hands-on education to the unforgettable hospitality, to the other beautiful people you brought together for this tour from all over, I'm still amazed that I got to be a part of such a perfect event, and I will never forget it. Especially because, thanks to this gift (pictured), I'll BEE in Mexico forever.
If you haven't applied to go, apply NOW. ~ Chelsea Gregoire
Tequila Patron distillery tour. Learned about differences of Tahona process, roller mill process. Watched whole process. ~ SeongHa Lee
How lucky are we to be in this industry? An industry that values education, camaraderie and community services ... Opportunities like this are exactly why I am a member of, and huge supporter, of the USBG. ~ Skipper Bonano
This post came from Francisco Alcaraz himself in gratitude for the Charity Work involved in this program...
Hola #USBG Hacienda visitors, I was so happy to meet all of you this week. We take great pride in what we do here at Patron, but you all have exceeded our greatest expectations with your charity work.
