Our dear reader stop whatever you are doing and give us your undivided attention, because we have something extremely special to announce! Ready? You may want to be sitting down. This October at the Haycock and Tailbar, we are hosting a highly exclusive tequila night with the Mexican masters of tequila, Herradura.

If your first reaction to the sound of tequila was a wince as your mind wandered back to some less than pleasant experiences, which more than likely involved a wedge of lemon and sprinkling of salt, then there is a chance that you have been tricked into believing that tequila is anything less than utterly delightful. Fortunately, the fine folks at Herradura and the Haycock and Tailbar are going to reveal to you the unknown pleasures of how to fully enjoy good tequila.

Herradura tequila is coming to Northampton

Before we say anymore, any talk of “one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor!” should be left at the door. Rhymes aside, this evening is all about exposing the joys that reside within tequila, showing how this often misunderstood and misrepresented spirit is easily as sippable as scotch and extremely versatile when it comes to cocktails.

So what better way to show this than an evening of tasting and cocktails made with Herradura’s incredible tequila?! The event takes place on Monday 13th October at the Haycock and Tailbar in Northampton town centre and starts promptly at 6.45pm and ends at around 9pm. Each winner will get to attend with a plus one of their choosing. Here at the gent, we have ran a fair few of these events and we can say without a doubt that this is the one we have been unfathomably excited about – one of our editors really did need to sit down following the announcement.

A little bit about the tequila that is going to take you on this exploratory journey; Herradura is a Mexican tequila distillery that has been operating for more than a century and has lived through the last 100 years of Mexico’s somewhat tumultuous history, maintaining the same traditional crafting methods that it employed its inception.
