Take a walk down Calle 23 in this sexually ambiguous episode of the Tequila Whisperer Show! Tonite’s brand is one of the few tequilas created by a woman: Sophie Decobecq, a master biochemist. It’s a great excuse for Th’ Lip to get in touch with his feminine side.
Join Lippy in welcoming tequila legend and Master Distiller of t1 Tequila Uno, German Gonzalez!
