Updated: Sep 8, 2023

Do you have a fervour for culinary and cultural exploration? If so, our upcoming event with the remarkable Xav Buendia is tailor-made for you. Join us as we dive into a sneak peek of what his Mexican-themed evening has in store!

Get ready, Connected community, because an unforgettable night is just around the corner! On 16 September we have the renowned food and documentary photographer, sommelier, and all-around legend, Xav Buendia, teaming up with his friends at Mangrove Drinks to bring you an exclusive Tequila and Mezcal tasting event like no other. Hosted by us, Connected Brighton, this evening promises to be an immersive exploration of Mexican spirits, culture, and, of course, some epic fun!

Journey into Mexican Spirits

The evening kicks off with an arrival watermelon margarita that sets the tone for what's to come. Sip on this lovingly prepared cocktail by Xav himself, and let the excitement build as you prepare your palate for the Tequila and Mezcal journey ahead.

Now, let's talk about the stars of the show: Tequila and Mezcal. You'll have the chance to savour not one, but two Tequilas and two Mezcal's, each poured generously at 35 ml servings. Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or a curious newbie, Xav will take you on a flavourful ride through the world of these Mexican spirits, sharing his expertise and insights along the way from his time in Mexico and in hospitality.

Paired Bites to Enhance Flavour

As you savour the delightful drinks, you'll also have a selection of snacks at your table to complement the tasting experience. These perfectly paired bites will enhance the flavours and leave you craving for more…

Exclusively Yours

The best part? This event is exclusively for our group, which means you get Xav Buendia all to yourselves! Imagine having a casual chat with him about his adventures in food photography, his journeys through Mexico, or his insights into the world of spirits. It's an opportunity you won't want to miss.

This event is designed to be intimate, with limited numbers, ensuring that you can truly savour every moment. It's an exclusive gathering of like-minded individuals who share your passion for culinary and cultural exploration.
