El Gran Jubileo recently asked us to shoot some hi-def video for their new website. It was a great opportunity to be out in the agave fields and to get to know their distillery and the kind, thoughtful people who work

Ahh, Cinco de Mayo—margaritas, tequila shots, mariachi music, crowded bars and trouble waiting to happen. At least, that’s the U.S. version of this curious holiday. But here in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo passes pretty much unnoticed, except in the city of

We aren’t in Mexico right now. We’re not in California or New York either. We’re in Macon, Mississippi – and we have come to the realization that we are spoiled tequila brats. We are here to attend a family function (Scarlet’s

The legend of the sommelier, sitting in the cellar to taste and rate wines by candlelight, is alive and well in Mexico. Except here the cherished spirit is tequila and the expert tasters are known as “catadores.” We recently had the

Scarlet and I have been running around Mexico getting things in order, and although most things are very different here (compared to our lives in San Francisco), one thing remains with us at all times – our iPhones. Everything is new

We packed and stored everything we owned, sold one car and lent the other one to some friends, and let go of our beautiful apartment in San Francisco. We even figured out a fun way to get rid of our 85-bottle

We have a bit of TasteTequila.com 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

The other day, someone posted a link on Twitter to a list of “Top Tequila Sites,” and I got all excited. I immediately clicked on that link, hoping it would reveal a yet-to-be-discovered website (or two.) When I got there, I

Our latest video featuring Mark Alberto Holt and Gabbi Villarrubia, our tequila experts from Sayulita, Mexico, is all about tequila and hangovers. I asked them to address the hangover issue because people ask me about it all the time – and

It was late at night, and the hotel bar was closed. Luckily, the cleaning crew was on call to keep the tequila flowing, so we sat and talked for hours about Mexico, about tequila, and about life. We were only one

We haven’t done an update lately, so I thought I would take a few minutes today and size up the current inventory in our home collection.

(Left to Right) Tequila Lapis Anejo; mini-bottle Gusano Rojo Mezcal Joven w/worm; "Scarlet y Grover" mini-barrel - a gift from Tequilas de Senor distillery; Aha Toro Anejo; Don Julio Anejo; Pueblo Viejo Anjeo; Tequila Castelan Anejo; Tequila Esperanto Select Anejo; Centinella Anejo; Tequila Ocho Anejo; Tequila El Mayor; Tequila Castelan Reposado; La Cava de Mayoral blanco; Tequila Oro Azul; El Tequileño Reposado; Cazadores Anejo; Herradura Anejo; Gran Centenario Reserva del Tequilero; Partida Anejo; Dos Lunas Anejo; Gran Centenario Anejo; Pueblo Viejo Orgullo; Tequila Fortaleza; Heradura Seleccion Suprema; El Diamonte del Cielo; Gran Centenario Leyenda; Don Julio 1942; Maestro Tequila Anejo; Siete Leguas Anejo; Don Julio Real; Siete Leguas Reposado; Siete Leguas Blanco; Tres Manos Anejo; Tequila D'Antaño (Siete Leguas extra anejo); Casa Noble Blanco; Casa Noble Anejo; TKO blanco; a bottle of partially consumed JR Storey wine; Tequila Stallion anejo. Not shown (because the bottle is too damn tall) Clase Azul anjeo.

Don’t get confused with my use of the word “collection,” because all of these bottles are here for only one reason – to drink. No matter how pretty the bottle is, it goes in the recycle bin when it’s empty.

Our bar currently contains 37 bottles of tequila, 1 mini barrel of tequila we received as a gift, 1 mini bottle of mezcal, and 1 bottle of wine (all visible in the picture.) Not shown, because they are stored below, are 12 other bottles of tequila (including a bottle of El Tesoro de Don Felipe), mostly backup bottles to ensure that we don’t unexpectedly run out.

:-)

So that’s 49 bottles of tequila, total. Hmmm. I’d like to make that an even 50. What are we missing?
