2 evenings, 4 happy hours, 4 artists, and 4 unique cocktails.
For those of you who love tequila and art this event is a must. But Herradura isn’t your average tequila. Their tequila is some of the best around, and you would be great at making blue agave tequil too, if you had been doing it since 1870. With so much time in the industry, this company has the art of making tequila down to a science- they slowly steam the harvested agaves, and then leave the juices to age in only oak barrels imported from Kentucky. Their craft is an art, and that’s why this company is celebrating the art of tequila, with their BarrelHead art event. Four artists will create unique works on the Kentucky oak barrels used for the production of Herradura’s handcrafted Tequila, and you will be able to see art and taste the art (tequila that is) at four different happy hour locations on the evenings of 28th and 29th. Save the dates, RSVP, check out the artists and be prepared for the innovation. Because when tequila this good pairs up with local artists it’s bound to be, legendary.
