This holiday season, Tequileria Maya offers a new spin on gift giving, perfect for tequila aficionados and Mexican food lovers alike. Better than a gift card or sticking a bow on a store-bought bottle, the Sip and Store tequila program allows you to gift a bottle (or two, or three) hand-selected by Maya’s very own Tequila Librarian Courtenay Geenleaf, who says of the program, “It’s a nice touch for guests to come in, have a bottle, or bottles, or even a whole collection. It’s a nice entertaining touch—people bring friends and family in, or clients, to enjoy their own personal collection, and they can say, ‘here, enjoy my collection.’” It is a gift of more than a bottle—it is a comprehensive tequila experience. The tequila will be presented by one of Maya’s passionate experts, along with an explanation of the bottle’s elements and origins. The bottle will then be available to Sip and Store in one of Maya’s personal Tequila Lockers for up to three months, allowing lucky recipients to appreciate their tequila at leisure, and to sip to taste—bottles are served with a choice of housemade sangrita or a craft-your-own margarita kit for only $10, or, for tequila purists, straight or on the rocks.
The varied and sophisticated selection will appeal to anyone with a true appreciation for tequila. Choose from one of eight unique, luxury varieties: the spicier Don Julio Blanco, the smooth, rich Partida Reposado, the Limited Edition Richard Sandoval Inspired Herradura Double Barrel Reposado, the ultra-premium Clase Asul Reposado, and the small-batch artisanal Ilegal Reposado Mezcal. Whether your loved one is a tequila snob, foodie, or simply has a palate for adventure, Maya has a bottle with their name on it—literally.
Personal Bottle Gift Packages can be purchased through Maya’s website at http://www.richardsandoval.com/mayany/store-TMP.php. Upon purchase, Maya will send you the official bottle tag to present as the gift. All the recipient has to do is show up, show their ID, and sip! Guests can enjoy personal bottles with tapas and tacos at Tequileria Maya and then bring the party to the dining room to pair their tequila with a dinner of classic Mexican fare. The personal bottle program is also available at Maya’s sister restaurant, La Biblioteca, located on Third Avenue at 40th Street, via their website http://www.richardsandoval.com/labiblioteca/index.php
