Several tequila brands will be unveiled at the Spirits of Mexico Festival this week in San Diego.
T-1 (Tequila Uno), El Grado Tequila, which translates as "highest grade," and Suavemente Tequila, the first brand to win gold medals for all four entries (blanco, reposado, añejo and extra añejo) in the Polished Palate's agave-only spirits competition last year.
More than 100 entries will be sampled in blind judging this week. Dori Bryant's Polished Palate events always support charity. This year's silent auction will benefit the Sky Ranch Foundation, which next year will mark 50 years of helping troubled youths.
Seminars at the Spirits of Mexico Festival this week include video presentations, cocktail-making demonstrations, and various dinners.
Bryant today announced the scheduling of a variety of events for the remainder of the year managed by her Polished Palate organization. They are:
• 8th annual NY RumFest, Astor Center, New York, October 8.
• Polished Palate Spirits Festival as part of the Latin Food & Wine Festival in Orlando, FL, November 14-15.
• The Tampa Bay Spirits Festival at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club, St. Petersburg, FL, November 28.
