Like millions of others, I count myself as someone that swore off tequila after a few too many hangovers during the college years. For roughly the next ten years, the only tequila that I consumed was the occasional margarita. That all changed in 2000 when I was reintroduced to the spirit with some true “top-shelf” 100% agave “craft-made” brands. Tequila was again on my radar and soon after became my drink of choice. I started this site so that I could note my experiences and share my journey as I learn more about the different brands, taste profiles, and unique stories behind what we drink.
To be clear, I do not claim to be an expert or aficionado. There are so many others that are truly experts. I am, simply, an enthusiast that has come to enjoy and appreciate a great glass of tequila and with it, a desire to learn all I can and share this passion with family and friends. What defines a great tequila may be different to you than it is to me and that’s OK because, after all, our perspectives and our palates are unique. More importantly, as the saying goes, “You can’t argue taste!” So don’t take my word for it – go out and try new and different brands wherever you can. If we agree, excellent! If we don’t, that’s OK too! I hope that my posts will at least provide you with some additional insights to a company, brand or experience.

Next time you’re in the SF Bay Area we should meet and talk tequila. We have just rolled out ‘Mi Casa Tequila’ and it’s getting a lot of love.
You look so familiar! You are in Austin, right? I am doing a revision of my original tequila book that was first published i 1995…would like to talk to you…hope to hear from you.
where o where can you buy this texas bottle of tequila ?? cant find it !
Hi Karen, It’s pretty widely available here in Texas, but should also be available in Colorado and a few other midwest states. It’s also available online if you live in a state that allows shipping of spirits.
I have a bottle of Mexican Tequila “La Guitarra”, has been in my family for nearly 40 years, never opened, lost the front label but still has the seal. Seeking information on the internet but do not get it. Know something about this bottle. I’ve seen pictures of collectors and nobody has this bottle, I think it’s very special. I am looking for any collector who is interested and can preserve and appreciate more than I do.
I’ve got a question for you all?I’m wanting to purchase a few bottles of tequila as Im a tequila sipper, I love all things tequila, what I’m in search of is an anejo or Extra anejo ones with tons of depth and flavor, one that’s robust and bursting with different flavor after every sip, one with lots of life in it.i like heavy fruit presents as well as heavy vanillas but one that is smooth to the taste, a tequila that stands out but will not cost me a fortune.i like oak flavor saw well as fruits and vanillas if that makes sense, any recommendations but be great full.thanks and have a great rest of your day.as well is the Crotalo anejo a great sipper or is it worth spending the extra for the extra anejo
There are so may really goods one to choose from…my current recommendations would include Abandonado anejo , Number Juan anejo, Sierra Milinaro xAnejo and for a real low price but extra good is Espolon Anejo! Happy Sipping!!
Hi – would you be interested in a bottle of 1800 Collecion with full certificates, case and pewter bottle? Its early 2000’s I think. We paid around £800 for it back then
