Take a ride down to the Mexican Highlands with your TEQUILA WHISPERER. He unlocks the mysteries of champagne yeast, superstar Master Distillers, and the functionality of playing classical music to stimulate alcohol production! It’s like “Alice Through the Looking Glass”, but with TEQUILA!
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! German and his family were the creators of Chinaco, one of the very first premium tequilas imported into the U.S. in the early 80’s. Fast forward some 30 years and we find German striking out on his own with a new brand created specifically for the American palate. Tequila Uno features a mass of balanced agave interest with “no bite”.
Saddle up your yapping dog and take a trip with Th’ Lip down to the wilds of the Chihuahuan desert in Northern Mexico! Here in the dry dustiness of the flavorful scrub country we’ll find the SOTOL plant growing wild and abundant. And in the Man-Cave of Northern California you’ll find Lippy pouring Don Cuco Sotol wildly and with great abandon!
