For our Tequila Lovers
The taste of tequila will vary depending upon where the agave was grown as well as the type of tequila. Blanco tequilas offer the purest taste with an earthy, semi-sweet flavor that is distinctly agave. Tequila made in the lowlands is fruitier and earthier while tequila from the highlands is greener and brighter. Tell your server how you like it – neat, rocks or margarita.
