Queen Mary (Long Beach, CA)
Too many people only know tequila as the harsh, adulterated hootch they drank too much of in college. If you haven’t tried the real thing, you don’t know what you’re missing. Now here’s your chance to sample some of the best. Herradura Tequila is one of the finest, a spirit of elegance, refinement and incredible flavor. At this exclusive dinner aboard the historic Queen Mary, you’ll have the chance to sample five different Herradura tequilas, including one from the ship’s private barrel, selected exclusively for them. The tasting will be accompanied by a delicious five-course meal prepared by the ship’s award-winning chefs, culminating with an indulgent dessert and a fine Macanudo cigar. (The latter, of course, may be declined, if desired.) The tasting will be overseen by a very special guest, Ruben Aceves, the Director of International Brand Development for Casa Herradura and one of the most respected men in the tequila industry.
