Like fine wine, tequila has connoisseurs and collectors who enjoy its deep complexities from blanco to extra-anejo and all the categories in between.
“Tequila is highly regarded in Mexico, however often a misunderstood spirit in the US. We make a conscious effort of educating people at Holy Tequila and then point them in the right direction to explore new things. Once you understand the subtle differences in taste and style, you can start to seek out specific flavor profiles that you already enjoy or pair well with a specific food, which makes the spirit approachable and similar to how people appreciate and approach fine wines.” Says owner Nick Bergelt.
When it comes to Mexican food, every region in Mexico has a specialty and Bergelt and his team went to great lengths when developing their concept to intimately understand the different variations of each region.
