What will we cover?

This class will cover a brief history of tequila and a snapshot of an industry that still harvests its raw material the same way they did centuries ago. We will also discuss the different categories of tequila (eg. 51% agave vs 100% agave tequilas), the difference in characteristics between the major regions and we’ll finish with a tasting of 100% agave blanco, reposado and anejo tequilas.
