Mexico Bound

We have a bit of news to report — On April 1, 2010, Grover and I are moving to Mexico. We’ll be settling right smack-dab in the middle of the tequila region so we can fill this blog with the most up-to-date and in-depth coverage of what’s happening in the world of tequila.

Stay tuned for frequent updates, interviews and video directly from the heartland of tequila. In the meantime, please excuse our spotty updates while we prepare to move. We promise to make up for it.

We will be staying in the beautiful town of Tlaquepaque, about 20 minutes outside of Guadalajara and in between the two most famous tequila production regions, the Highlands and the Lowlands. If you haven’t visited Tlaquepaque we highly recommend it. It is the perfect spot to experience the very best of Mexico with magical food, music, and culture in a safe and friendly environment. In fact, Tlaquepaque is where we were married last November and where we started doing all of the research that has gone into this blog over the last year.

Since we’ll have our eyes and ears on the ground, let us know if there any topics that you’d like to see us cover. We’re planning to review hard-to-find tequilas, and write profiles about local tequila personalities and distilleries, and use the blog to tell the stories of the region.

For the moment, we are excited and getting ready to go. One of our main concerns was getting rid of the 80-plus bottles of tequila in our collection, which we obviously can’t take with us.

Our solution — a “Drain the Bar” party, where all of our friends could leisurely sample and taste everything on our bar – including the $350 bottle of Herradura Seleccion Suprema. Look for updates and videos from this over-the-top event very soon.

We’re giving up or lovely apartment in San Francisco, selling our car, clearing off our bar, and getting ready to plunge head-first into the land of tequila.

Hasta Mexico,

Grover y Scarlet

  1. Wow, let me know if I can bring anything.


  2. Big news guys. Can’t wait to see your HD visuals from down there. This is the beginning of something great.


  3. Welcome to Gdl, Mexico!


  4. Awesome! I just made the move myself, on week #2 in Guadalajara. Not staying in one place though, but will be back around GDL April 7th. Would love to meet up and talk a bit of tequila with you. My Mexican cell is 333-498-7422, shoot me a txt if you would like to meetup.

    Salud y buena suerte


  5. I’ve been to GDL recently and came back with a good bottle of tequila. Try Azcona Azul when you’re down there – very delicious. I was only been able to find it at a couple stores though. I don’t know how widely available it is.


  6. if any bottles where left over i would love just to 1 mailed to me i am an hour away from san fransico in salinas


  7. Some fantastic pictures. I’ve been living in Tlaquepaque for 5 years and those are really showing the character of the town. Beautiful.


  8. Wow! That is great that you guys made the move to a whole new country. To a lesser extent my wife & I did something simular when we moved from New Jersey to Florida. I built a Poolside Tiki/Tequila Bar & Lounge behind my house. I have often contemplated packing it all in and heading to tequila country as well! The town of Tlaquepaque looks so clean & beautiful. Are there any job opportunities there? How are the rent prices? Anyway best of luck to you both. OBTW…I enjoy checking out all the great tequila info on your site.


  9. when you move to Guanatos give a call would like to talk to you when you over there email me and I’d give you my gdl number since I change number often I don’t have a number now, good luck with your move!
