Luxury Hotel in Dallas, Texas Adds Exotic Spirits to Nightly Guacamologist Experience
DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- May 12, 2016 -- The nightly Guacamologist Experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas is taking on a new dimension this week, thanks to the planned unveiling of a one-of-a-kind Tequila Vault on Friday, May 13. A prized trove and showcase of all things agave, the Tequila Vault is located in the hotel lobby and is a cache of rare and coveted spirits, including a prized Patrón en Lalique valued at more than $8,000. Only 100 bottles of Patrón en Lalique were ever produced.
Since the luxury Texas hotel's opening in 2007, a Chef-Guacamologist has made his way into The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas Lobby at 6 p.m. each evening, where he prepares and presents a limited edition of hand-crafted guacamole, enhanced by freshly-selected Texas produce and accompanied by signature margarita tastings. Beginning this Friday, the doors of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas Tequila Vault will also be opened nightly at 6 p.m., as the Guacamologist Experience introduces an added focus on prized tequilas and tequila education.
The Tequila Vault will showcase treasured agave-based spirits including the Tequila Patrón collection, Fearing's signature Barrel Select Tequila, a wide array of mezcals (another spirit derived from agave), and more.
- All tequilas and mezcals kept in the Vault will be available to
order at the Fearing's Restaurant Rattlesnake Bar or through
tequila servers in the hotel lobby.
- The Tequila Vault is curated by its own CRT-trained specialty
bartender. CRT is the regulatory body which oversees tequila
production in Mexico, and the newly appointed tequilier is the
hotel's official expert in this fascinating spirit.
- Each month, the Vault will showcase a specialty tequila or
mezcal cocktail that will be presented each evening during and
after the Guacamologist ritual. This monthly specialty cocktail
also will be available for purchase throughout the hotel's
restaurants and bars.
- Once a month, a high-profile bartender or spirts expert will be
invited to host a specialty tasting of tequila or mezcal, and to
create and present new specialty drinks while educating guests of
the hotel and of Fearing's Restaurant.
- The Vault was custom-designed and crafted as homage to the
world of agave. The motif on the mirrors of its artisanal front is
inspired by the pattern found on a female agave "piña" after
it is harvested to be made into tequila.
The Tequila Vault is one of several signature food and beverage offerings of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. The hotel is home to Fearing's Restaurant, which has been ranked the #1 hotel restaurant in the United States.
