On Cinco de Mayo, The Commissary Kitchen by Richard Sandoval will debut its brand-new tequila collection, comprising over 100 unique and rare spirits. Chef Sandoval’s National Beverage Director Robert Day helped create the collection.
Day, who is also a certified tequila expert by the Consejo Regulador del Tequila (The Tequila Regulatory Council), worked along with the Las Vegas team for nearly six months to perfect this collection.
“Our goal is to introduce our guests to the fine art of sipping tequila, not just shooting it,” says Day. “This will be an incredibly eclectic collection ranging from the popular, mainstream tequilas ranging to unique flavors they’ll only be able to find at The Commissary in downtown.”
To celebrate the collection’s debut, The Commissary will feature Cinco De Mayo specials beginning Saturday, May 3. The specials will include Red Pozole or Tortilla Soup ($4); appetizers such as tacos ($1), three flautas ($5), quesadillas ($5 for cheese, $6 for chicken), brisket nachos ($5) and aqua fresco (watermelon, horchata, jamaica or cucumber).
Amongst the most expensive labels will be the Don Julio Patron Real 1942, El Mojito Mezcal and Patron Anejo Grandiose. Furthermore, every type of Patron including Blanco, Anejo and Reprezado will be available. The Commissary will also offer a new line of infused tequilas with flavors including jalapeno, tropical and coconut. Prices on this exciting list range from $7 to $95 a shot. All guests will receive a tequila menu and tasting notes in order to understand the plethora of choices available.
“This tequila collection will be the only one of its kind in Las Vegas, designed to pair perfectly with Chef Sandoval’s culinary creations at The Commissary,” concludes Day. “The Commissary is where tequila aficionados will be flocking come Cinco de Mayo and beyond.”
