“What could be more enticing for the "Tequila Culture" than celebrating Mexico's Festive National Spirit in Las Vegas, arguably the World's most Festive city. I attended the event with a large group of fellow tequila aficionados representing various internet entities, as well as some notable tequila bars and restaurants. We all came away with a great respect for this well organized event. With great anticipation we'll be looking forward to the 2008 Las Vegas Tequila Fest.”            ~ Mark Cannon www.pocotequila.com

Several of the industry's top tequila ambassadors, master distillers, noted tequila experts, as well as innovative chefs and bartenders from across the U.S. and Mexico will be on hand to share the latest trends, exotic recipes and the legends and folklore surrounding their unique distilleries. From bottles of the best Blancos, Reposado, Añejos, Premium and Ultra-premium to the newest tequila liqueurs, crèmes, infusions and flavored tequilas, the 2008 Tequila Fest will be a vibrant celebration of the fastest growing spirit in the U.S.
