One Tequila, Two Tequila…


Beer, Wine, and Spirits

It's the key ingredient in a traditional margarita. It's the go-to liquor during a south-of-the-border visit. And with a dash of sea salt and a wedge of lime, it's the life of the party. Distilled from the blue agave plant sourced from the Mexican state of Jalisco, Tequila is a spirit in a class of its own. We've got the low-down on varieties and vintages, so drink up:
