Great Festival Chase Tour FAQs #GreatFestChase https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5LdWhen does The Great Festival Chase start?

Our tour begins on National Tequila Day, July 24th, as we depart from Texas and make our way to Mammoth Lakes, California.  It’s a 1600 mile drive just to get to our starting point and our driver (Lisa) needs breaks.

 

Can I still get in on this tour?

YES!  We need to depart Texas earlier this year in order to make it to the Mammoth Margarita Festival in Early August, but you still have time to get on board.

The tour information page & pricing is available here:
http://tequilaaficionado.com/2018-great-festival-chase/

If you’re interested in a lot more exposure to get your brand on the tip of every agave spirit lover’s tongue, Brands of Promise Nominees from this year, and any previous years, are also qualified for our Influencer Marketing Package (which includes the 2018 Tour). Details can be found here:
http://tequilaaficionado.com/tequila-pr/influencer-marketing/

 

How long do I have to decide?

If you choose to tour with us, we will need to know by June 15 and receive payment and 2 bottles of each expression by July 1.

 

How much does the tour cost?

The total cost to you for each expression that you would like to go on this tour is only $500.

 

Great Festival Chase Tour FAQs #GreatFestChase https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5LdWhat else do I get as a sponsor?

In addition to exposure at these shows, sponsors will receive a ridiculous amount of social media posts on behalf of Tequila Aficionado, on all of our social networks, to promote their brands. You can find the complete list of posts and items that we will be providing to all of our sponsor brands – for each expression – at http://bit.ly/greatfestchase.

 

Are you pouring at all of these shows?

No.  We will only be pouring at the El Cholo event.  If we were pouring at each event, we’d need to carry a lot more booze and our RV just isn’t that big.

 

Will I get exposure at all of these shows?

In early August the first stop on our tour will be the Mammoth Margarita Festival. While we aren’t pouring there, we will be auditioning tasters for Tequila Aficionado and using sponsor brands for those tastings.

Our next stop will be in Monterey where we will do a series of interviews at the Monterey Bay Tequila and Cuisine event. Sponsor brands will get exposure there by product placement in the videos.

Lastly, we will finish the tour at El Cholo in Pasadena at the end of October, where we will be pouring sponsor brands.

 

Great Festival Chase Tour FAQs #GreatFestChase https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5LdWill sponsors get to participate with you at the events?

If you’re available, the Mammoth Margarita Festival, Monterey or El Cholo will be great venues for interviews for our Open Bar show.  Please email Lisa@TequilaAficionado.com to let us know the most convenient venue to meet up.

Also, if you’d like to represent your brand at the El Cholo VIP tasting, we’d love to have you there.  (See below for details.)

 

What if I want to pour at Mammoth Margarita Festival?

Let us know and we’ll put you in contact with the organizers.

 

What if I want to pour & enter at Monterey Bay Tequila and Cuisine?

Great Festival Chase Tour FAQs #GreatFestChase https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5LdWhat if I want to pour at El Cholo?

Great!  As a tour sponsor, your brand is already participating in and will be poured during the VIP Hour at El Cholo.  If you or a representative of your brand would like to do the pouring and be available to discuss your brand with the VIPs, we’d love to have you there!  Please email Lisa@TequilaAficionado.com and let her know you’ll be there.

Tequila Aficionado: Where It All Began

In the Beginning, There Was Only Audio

Tequila Aficionado: Where It All Began https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5Gt

On October 27, 2017, Tequila Aficionado Media celebrated its 18th anniversary with an invitation-only VIP tasting at the site of the very first Sipping Off The Cuff© podcast

The iconic El Cholo Cafe in Pasadena, California.

As the crowning jewel of 2017’s Wild Wild West Tour, El Cholo Cafe itself was commemorating its 94th year serving authentic Mexican cuisine to Southern California.

For those who attended, the 2017 Editions of both anniversaries was indeed magical.

We’ll be back once again in 2018 as our last stop on the Great Festival Chase Tour.

A Celebratory Audio Podcast

During a short lull in the action, Tequila Aficionado’s Founder Alex Perez, and CEO Mike Morales, took a moment or two to catch their breath and to reflect on the nearly twenty years of honest, authentic tequila and agave spirits news and reviews.

Growing with The Internet

We often say that Tequila Aficionado has grown parallel to the Internet.

For instance, in the early days, most all of our reviews were audio only.  Later, with the creation of YouTube, Tequila Aficionado moved to strictly video reviews on its own channel.

To date, we have over 500 video reviews, with new ones being added weekly.

The Resurgence of Audio

As the Internet continues to evolve, it seems that certain thingsTequila Aficionado: Where It All Began https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5Gt never really die.  Audio podcasting has been reinvented and is even more popular than ever.

Whether using an elaborate set up, or simply pressing the button on the voice recording function of a smart phone, anyone can establish their own podcast channel.

The advances in software have allowed us to pull the audio from our Sipping Off The Cuff(c) episodes and to upload them to our BlogTalk Radio channel.

Multi-tasking is a way of life these days, but now you can take us with you wherever you go–

To the gym, on the way to work, to the local bar, or even to your neighborhood liquor store.

“Alexa, play Tequila Aficionado podcast”

Another easier way to stay up-to-date on the latest Sipping Off The Cuff(c) episode of your favorite tequila, mezcal or agave spirit, is to tell your virtual assistant, Amazon Alexa, to play it for you.

Tequila Aficionado: Where It All Began https://wp.me/p3u1xi-5Gt

Simply repeat the above command and–BAM!–Alexa will play the latest Sipping Off The Cuff(c) review for you.  If you’ve missed earlier episodes, just ask Alexa to play the previous review, and so on.

[Note:  BlogTalk Radio inserts short commercial breaks into the audio.  A radio aggregator then picks up the audio tracks and feeds them to Alexa, however, the ads are blacked out.  Please disregard the intermittent “dead air,” and keep listening to the end of each episode.]

Hey, nothing’s perfect, but…

We have come a long way from handheld tape recorders, microphones and tequila glasses.
