Jackie Moffett (NW Tequila Fest) on 5th Anniversary of ET

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. 
In three short years, the Northwest Tequila Fest has established itself as a top-flight event that attracts tequila aficionados from throughout the United States. Fest co-founder Jackie Moffett is a true agave dyanmo, getting more done before lunch than most people get done in a week. We are proud to have been a part the the Northwest Tequila Fest for the third consecutive year.

“Experience Tequila has been a crucial part of the success of Northwest Tequila Fest, and we are grateful to, and forever learning from Clayton. No one I have met knows more about tequila, and his continued commitment to education means that those of us in the agave world have an amazing asset and resource for spreading the good word about tequila.

Congratulations on your first 5 years, Clayton! Here’s to many, many more.”
