THE TEQUILA

  1. Hornitos Cristalino
    To create Hornitos Cristalino, we take a triple-distilled Añejo tequila for extra-smoothness, then carbon filter it, stir it and patiently remove the color while nurturing the essential distinctive Añejo notes—vanilla and butterscotch, rounded with sweet honey— delivering an exceptionally silky Cristalino experience, sip after sip.
  2. Tres Generaciones Plata
    Tres Generaciones’ Plata Tequila is an un-aged, crystal clear tequila made from 100% blue agave. It is triple-distilled, giving it a unique, pure agave taste and smoothness.
  3. Tres Generaciones Reposado
    Tres Generaciones’ Reposado Tequila is made from 100% blue agave. It is triple-distilled for smoothness, then rested in American Oak barrels for at least four months.
  4. Tres Generaciones Anejo
    Tres Generaciones’ Anejo Tequila has a rich, 100% blue agave flavor enhanced by 12 months in toasted American oak barrels where it gains its delicate amber hue, an array of subtle flavors, and its unique smooth, smoky finish.
  5. Hornitos Black Barrel
    Hornitos most highly awarded tequila, Hornitos® Black Barrel, starts as a premium, aged Añejo, then spends four months in deep charred oak barrels to give it rich, smoky flavor and a golden amber color. It spends an additional two months in specially toasted barrels for more depth and distinct complexity.

THE STUDIO

Dubbed the “Sistine Chapel of rock ’n’ roll,” this historic mobile recording studio was used by British rock legends Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and the Rolling Stones. Conceived by Rolling Stones tour manager Ian Stewart and built in 1968, the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio (RSM) was the first ever professional mobile recording studio, built to accommodate the band’s wild 24-hour lifestyle. Equipped with a state-of-the-art Helios recording console, the RSM soon gained popularity among other musicians, leading to the creation of countless classic rock albums. Acquired by National Music Centre in 2001, the RSM has since been restored to its former glory and is now parked next to the King Eddy stage where it’s available for artists to record. Many legendary albums were recorded using the RSM, including:

  • Live Magic – Queen
  • Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street – The Rolling Stones
  • Moonflower – Santana
  • Zeppelin III and Zeppelin IV – Led Zeppelin
  • Machine HeadBurn, and Live in Europe – Deep Purple
  • Penguins and Mystery to Me – Fleetwood Mac
  • Live! – Bob Marley and The Wailers
  • Harvest – Neil Young
  • Alchemy: Dire Straits Live – Dire Straits
  • Live in Italy – Lou Reed

Immerse yourself in a historic music experience like no other with unprecedented access to the RSM as we listen to Queen albums recorded live through this legendary studio.
