Tequila Tromba Smashes Tequila Tasting World Record

Tequila Tromba have been in touch to let us know that their record breaking tequila tasting event proved successful, beating the existing record of 341. More than 950 people took part, and although the paperwork still needs to go through Guinness hands, the overwhelming evidence suggests that the record has been broken. 

“It was an epic night,” beams Eric Brass, co-founder of Tequila Tromba. “We were at full capacity with an additional overwhelming response from those who wanted to purchase tickets after we sold out. It is heart-warming to see so much love for tequila, and especially for Tromba.”

Tequila Tromba Smashes Existing World Record for Largest Tequila Tasting First-time event draws near 1000 tequila lovers who celebrated and rejoiced their Mexican independence

September 23, 2013 (Toronto, ON) – It’s no contest that Tequila Tromba beat the existing largest tequila tasting record of 341 with more than 950 people in attendance of their event this past Thursday, September 19th at 99 Sudbury.

Not only did guests get to drink Tromba Blanco, Reposado and Anejo, they were also served Tromba verdita chasers, signature Tromba cocktails and Tromba caesars. Devoured on the food side were specialties from several Toronto favourites like Playa Cabana, Rock Lobster, Hot Bunzz, Valdez, Gourmet Bitches and the soon-to-be-open eatery, Fonda Lola.

“It was an epic night,” beams Eric Brass, co-founder of Tequila Tromba. “We were at full capacity with an additional overwhelming response from those who wanted to purchase tickets after we sold out. It is heart-warming to see so much love for tequila, and especially for Tromba.”

The night was a true testament to Tromba’s following and to the devotion Torontonians have for their local start-ups. Tromba, along with all of those food vendors, started from nothing and built these successful businesses (and brands) because they love what they do. It’s evident in their products and in their followings.

Even more amazing was the number of Toronto’s best bartenders and mixologists who came out to both work the bar and to celebrate with the crowd. The bar was led by Tromba’s “Cantinero,” Robin Kaufman.

While the paperwork is off to official Guinness hands, it’s clear the record has been broken.

“We anticipate the event will officially be in the Guinness Book of World Records, but more importantly, it was an incredible way for us to have a great time with our fans, customers, partners and friends,” says Brass. “We couldn’t be happier with the night and we look forward to celebrating in true Tromba style again soon.”

Tromba Blanco can be found in the LCBO and is distributed across Canada. In winter/spring 2014, Tromba Reposado and Anejo will be available in-stores.
