*FTC Disclosure: Brands appearing on the Tequila Aficionado Dia de Los Muertos & Heartland Tour had to be vetted as Brand of Promise Nominees and paid a nominal fee to be on the tour.
The Dia de los Muertos Tour is even bigger and better than we imagined! We’re exploring the great Southwest!
First we’ll pay homage to the wonderful creatures who come alive at night to pollenate the desert flora, including agave, then we’ll move on to another one of nature’s wonders, The Grand Canyon.
Here’s our tour schedule and where we’ll be camping. If you’re near one of our stops, message us on Facebook and we’ll tell you when the pouring begins!
