Slightly tipsy workshops


Agave workshops with Tekiilakas

Andrei Kazakov
Fr and Sat 19:00 – 20:30, gathering at 18:45
Sunny= at the pier, otherwise at Piidivabrik

Andrei Kazakov aka Tekiilakas is an enthusiast of the Mexican distilled beverage landscape and the creator of Kaif Agaveria, the only agave spirits bar in the Baltics. I Land Sound 2023 is the 5th year in a row that Tekiilaka’s workshops are open to the public as part of the festival program, and this time the focus will be on products that either cannot be found as easily in Estonia or can’t be found at all. The participant will receive a welcome cocktail upon arrival,  5×1.5cl shots of chosen agave spirit during the workshop and the legendary shot of Kaif’s sangrita for the road. Each workshop lasts about 1.5 hours, gathering at 6.45 PM.

Thursday, July 13, 19:00 – 20:30 – Tequila Introducción / TICKET 30€

What’s the difference between good tequila and very good tequila? Why does it come in diffrent colours? Is it a sin to drink tequila with salt and lemon? How to forget tequila trauma from the youth? And other important subjects to turn you into a tequila professional in 1.5 hours. Coming up – tequilas from mixto to extra anejo. PS! If you didn’t understand the last sentence, then this is the workshop for you!

Friday, July 14 19:00-20:30 – Mezcal Introducción / TICKET 35€

A lot less known than tequila, yet a much looser, full of flavour, a more versatile and mystical drink from the heart of Mexico. This time we try to understand the difference between drinks based on cultivated and wild agave, what’s the difference between mezcals from Oaxaca and other states, and we’ll definitely try something that’s not on sale in Estonia.  If you are a friend of smoky whiskey and beautiful dark rum – come and join the Mezcal Intro and give me a chance to turn you into my religion.

Saturday, July 15 19:00-20:30 – Selección Privada / TICKET 40€

Tekiilakas’ private cellar means that only products that are not available in Estonia are on the table. And these aren’t some tquilas bought from the airport’s duty free shop. In addition to rare wild agave mezcals you can also get acquainted to spirits like sotol, raicilla and bacanora. This is the best tasting experience to an openminded person like You.
