Fourth-generation El Mayor Distillery Owner Graciela Gonzalez will be on hand as the Gamlin Restaurant Group releases the first-ever single barrel of El Mayor Extra Añejo tequila. The tequila will be unveiled at the El Mayor Extra Añejo Single Barrel Tequila Release Party at Sub Zero Vodka Bar, 308 N. Euclid Ave., St. Louis, Missouri 63108 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10.
The single-barrel El Mayor tequila will be added to the extensive single-barrel whiskey selection available at Gamlin Whiskey House and Sub Zero Vodka Bar.
“We have had tremendous success with our single-barrel whiskey program. When we were given the opportunity to be the first to offer a single-barrel of El Mayor Extra Añejo tequila we jumped at the chance,” Gamlin Restaurant Group Proprietor Derek Gamlin says. “It is a great opportunity for our guests to try something they can’t have anywhere else but at a Gamlin Restaurant Group establishment.”
Gonzalez hosted leaders of the Gamlin Restaurant Group at the El Mayor distillery in Guadalajara, Mexico, earlier this year and assisted them in selecting the tequila. El Mayor Extra Añejo tequila is 100 percent agave tequila aged in American white oak barrels for a minimum of three and a half years. This amber-hued tequila is full-bodied with a nose of dried fruit, caramel and smoky flavors.
Gonzalez, who serves as a brand ambassador for El Mayor and the family’s tequila distillery, will be signing bottles of the new tequila at the event.
Tickets to the release party at Sub Zero Vodka Bar are available to the public for $50 each and include tequila tastings, signature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and special event bottle pricing. Tickets are available at www.subzerovodkabar.com. The tequila will retail for $90 per bottle at Sub Zero Vodka Bar and Gamlin Whiskey House; it will be available for $80 at the release party.
