Experience Tequila launched in December, 2008. To commemorate our fifth anniversary, we asked friends and colleagues for their comments or reflections on our first five years. We will post the comments over the course of several months.
Jason Silverman has been running the excellent tequila bar at Agave NYC for over four years. Jay is a true-blue Weber friend of the agave, and an excellent barman to boot. Having been sent to Agave NYC by the Tequila Whisperer in, I believe, 2009, I had the pleasure of sitting at Jay’s bar for many hours. I was flattered that he was the first person ever to recognize me from my Website! It was the first of several visits, and Agave continues to my my first recommendation for those seeking Mexican libations with heart in New York City.
“Clayton Szczech has been an inspiring and supportive leader for people in the tequila world for many years. He has been generous to me personally as well as other aficionados with all he has to share about his time in Mexico and his vast expertise and knowledge of the tequila industry. I hope to work together again in the future spreading the word about agave spirits and look forward to learning more about the inner workings of the tequila and mezcal industries from Clayton.
For as long I can remember Experience Tequila has been the standard for touring the Agave Spirits regions in Jalisco and beyond. Clayton has a knowledge, dedication and organization that is unrivaled for those interested in learning more about Agave Spirits.”
