Playing With Fire

Join us for a special holiday weekend of events featuring Código 1530 Ultra-Premium Tequilas and flame-inspired dishes from the Grand Wailea culinary team including Grilled A5 Tostadas, Pepita-Crusted Mahi Mahi and Tequila Lime Pie. Honoring generations of refinement from the finest jimadors and most respected families of Mexico, Código 1530’s tequila and mezcal offerings have been perfected using time-honored customs without ever veering from the historic traditions – “Los Códigos” – that have made it the most selective tequila in the world.
