Tequila today is one of the fastest-growing liquors in the world, and the growth is decidedly upscale. An entire tequila culture has developed, not only throughout Mexico but in sophisticated restaurants and bars all over the world, from New York to Los Angeles, London to Tokyo.
Despite this trend, little has been published about tequila and its origins, varieties, and method of productionuntil now. In this delightfully visual book, author Enrique Martnez Limn takes the reader on a fascinating anecdotal journey through the history of tequila, providing complete information about how it is produced and descriptions of its legends, heroes, songs, and artistic manifestations. In addition, there are recipes for tequila-based cocktails and for dishes using tequila, as well as professional ratings of more than a hundred brands. The lively text is enhanced by Michael Calderwood's beautiful photography and the specially commissioned artwork.
