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.
