Austin is gearing up for a grand fiesta of spirits with the launch of Tequila Templo, a new rendezvous spot for agave aficionados in the heart of Texas. Tequila Templo has its sights set on April 13, 2024, to overwhelm taste buds with more than 200 variations of tequila, mezcal, and agave spirits and lace them with a dash of Austin charm.
With the same spirits that brought you the Austin Whiskey Riot festival, Tequila Templo will lay down the gauntlet, presenting the largest tequila festival on this side of the Rio Grande. Boasting an array of local, regional, national, and international brands, the event is the ideal saloon for those looking to delve into the vigorous world of agave spirits. According to Austin American Statesman report, attendees can look forward to rubbing elbows with master distillers and reveling in creative tequila cocktails.
Not just a shot-and-beer shindig, Tequila Templo is serious about its spirits. The exclusive VIP tickets, peddling at $120 a pop, offer spirits enthusiasts extra benefits over the $90 standard entry. These include early access and the chance to sample limited editions and rare finds that are not within the grasp of the general public. CBS Austin's coverage of the announcement highlights the special tasting glass that guests can take home as a memento of their foray into agave paradise.
The buzz-worthy event will transpire at Fair Market, a mainstay in the cuadrado on 1100 E 5th St. The spirits will start flowing from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m., with a VIP-only hour starting at 3 p.m. that promises undisturbed access to the premium sips. Savvy sippers and newcomers alike must be aged north of 21 to enter, lest they miss out on the high-octane affair.
For those eager to clink glasses amid an ocean of agave, general admission and VIP tickets can be snagged at the event's online box office. Tequila Templo is fast shaping up to be the ultimate Austin toast to the spirit of agave, where every distilled drop tells a story as rich and varied as the lands from which they hail.
