With so many new wineries and regions producing better and better wines, the world is our oyster. So why not think or DRINK outside the box and explore a little bit more this year. That’s one of our New Year’s resolutions to be sure.
Our topic for this week’s show, a departure from the vine. To a spirit that is undeniably a part of modern pop culture. Celebrated in song by many from Steely Dan and the Eagles to the Rolling Stones and Jimmy Buffet, a spirit that’s been around for over 200 years and growing in popularity. The delicious and often misunderstood, tequila! And there’s a lot more to tequila than one might think. It is a spirit rich in history, in complexity and versatility.
Joining us this week, our guest Ian Chadwick, a tequila and mescal aficionado. A writer,blogger, politician but he’s also the expert on tequila. He knows everything starting from the roots of the blue agave plant used to make it.
