Less than three months ago was the official launch of Familia Camarena Tequila in California. Now the 100 percent blue agave tequila takes the taste of Mexico to the streets with a mobile taco truck tour across LA. Featuring free (yes, free!) Familia Camarena Tequila-infused gourmet tacos created by local chef, Sevan Azarian.
Your first chance to try the tacos comes outside of Glendale's Recess when the Taco Truck tour kicks off today (June 2, 2010) outside of Azarian’s latest culinary retreat, Recess Eatery at 7pm, while a larger invitation-only party is panned for June 6th at Culver City's HighEnd Productions, with tequila-infused cupcakes and a cooking demo with Azarian. Recess will be the first of 120 daily stops the Camarena Taco truck will make in June and July. Other locations include the Santa Monica Pier, the Sunset Strip, and the Miracle Mile. Beginning on its launch date, you can get updates on the truck’s whereabouts through a dedicated website, a Facebook page, and of course via Twitter.
Camarena links currently not functional. We're expecting it all to come online later this evening.
Familia Camarena Tequila is made from 100 percent blue agave, grown in the Los Altos Highlands region of Jalisco. Produced in Arandas at a family-owned and operated distillery, each bottle is double distilled, as well as bottled, labeled and packaged by hand. The Camarena expressions include a Silver and a Reposado, aged for a minimum of two months in both new and used American oak barrels. Familia Camarena Tequila is currently available only in California and Nevada.
