Freak [20-29 ratings]

Connoisseur [60-74 ratings]

You find that people are checking with you first (phone calls, texts, emails) before they buy a tequila. They don’t want to let you down, because you’ve been promoted to tequila boss!
Wizard [600-999 ratings]
You’re a walking, talking, tequila-sipping encyclopedia. You can probably tell which tequila people will like just by looking at them. You’ve got so much knowledge that people are convinced that you are tapping directly into tequila’s magical powers. Ain’t no big thing for you, though, because you’re a wizard!
Honey Badger [1000+ ratings]
