    Interested in experiencing hard to find top-shelf tequilas with a world-renowned expert? This event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience tequila that you’ve never experienced before, with insight and perspective not normally found outside of Mexico, at a boutique agave ranch in Northern California.

    About Clayton Szczech

    Founder of Experience Agave and the only non-Mexican to earn the Tequila Regulatory Council’s prestigious “Double-T” certification, Clayton is a full time agave spirits culture specialist who believes that agave spirits should be sipped and savored, their history and culture absorbed and appreciated, and their regions of origin explored.

    Fluent both linguistically and culturally, his dedication to Mexico has flourished over the past 25 years. It began as an affinity for the Spanish language and developed into an active exploration of culture where he discovered that agave spirits are not just a beverage—but a place, history and tradition.

    At age 17—accompanied by a machete and a friend—he crossed the border on foot and is now a permanent resident in Mexico. As a recent immigrant, Clayton began exploring and tasting tequila, noting the wide range of flavor and quality. He read everything he could find about tequila, in both English and Spanish and with piqued curiosity traveled to the village of Tequila, Jalisco. He was immediately compelled to create an experience to share Tequila and its traditional elixir with the world.

    Clayton Szczech is a walking, talking encyclopedia of cultural knowledge. He is a known and trusted person within the tequila community.
