Deer Valley, AZ. – To help alleviate your concerns of having “absolutely nothing to do during July,” and also “no way am I going outside,” the team at Affordable Food Festivals are announcing some good news: a new indoor event called Taste Tequila on July 26th from 6 – 9 p.m. at Venue of Scottsdale, 7117 E. 3rd Ave., Scottsdale. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Anne Rita Monahan Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides research funding to support the development of reliable screening tests for ovarian cancer.

Modeled after their famous Tequila Expo at the Arizona Taco Festival, AFF’s Taste Tequila will offer attendees the opportunity to sample some of the finest blancos, reposados, anejos, extra anejos, and specialty tequilas in a decidedly elegant environment. Over 30 brands will showcase their entire portfolio of tequila types, meaning there will be over 100 types to try.

This evening affair will take place throughout the two-story Venue of Scottsdale. Education seminars will take place in an intimate side room, focusing on topics such history, flavor distinction, production methods. Meanwhile a live DJ will provide upbeat background music during the Grand Tasting in the main hall. At 9 p.m., the tequila tables will be cleared for two hours of cash bar and live music.
