In Search of the Blue Agave. Non-commerical labor of love maintained by Ian Chadwick. This is probably the single-best source of tequila information in English on the Web. Very thorough and accurate, and the forums are used by passionate, friendly agave lovers.
Tequila Source. Well-done omnibus tequila site with general information, photos and information on buying good tequila.
Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT, Consejo Regulador de Tequila). The English-language Website of the CRT, the authority that oversees tequila production and enforces the Official Mexican Norms of tequila (NOM, Norma Oficial Mexicana). They are the last word on tequila.
National Chamber of the Tequila Industry (CNIT, Cámara Nacional de la Industria Tequilera). The CNIT is a membership organization comprised of the majority of tequila producers, and includes all of the largest companies. They regularly publish interesting and useful statistics on tequila production, sales and exports.
Taste Tequila. Friendly, accessible tequila reviews, news, and opinions from our friends Grover and Scarlet. They produce some very high-quality videos.
The Tequila Whisperer. One-of-a-kind tequila personality ‘Lippy’ hosts a live Thursday night tequila Webcast. Past shows can be viewed on demand. You will know immediately whether this is for you or not.
The Tequila Examiner. Writer Ryan Kelley covers all things tequila from news and trends to gift ideas and cocktail recipes.
Tequila Aficionado. Online tequila magazine edited by veteran aficionados Alexander Pérez and Mike Morales.
Tequilart. Jalisco native Ben Olivares is the definitive photographer of contemporary Tequila Country.
Sea Fog Photography. Photographer and tequila aficionado Sean Fogarty has done some great work with tequila landscapes and everyday details.
Spirits of Mexico. Held in San Diego every year around Mexican Independence Day (Sept. 16), this is the premier tequila event for aficionados and consumers in the US. They recently started an event in Las Vegas as well, with plans to expand further.
Monterey (CA) Tequila and Mezcal Expo. October 2011 marks the third year for this well-regarded newcomer to the California tequila festival circuit.
Trébol Restaurant (Portland, OR). All 100%-agave tequilas served by knowledgeable staff. By the far best tequila selection in the state of Oregon. Kenny Hill’s Oaxacan-inspired, local, organic cuisine is delicious too.
Tommy’s (San Francisco, CA). Possibly the best tequila bar in the world, this place is legendary. Owner Julio Bermejo is Mexico’s Tequila Ambassador to the US, and one of the nicest people you’ll meet. He stocks an astounding array of rare tequilas.
Cantina Mayahuel (San Diego, CA). This place really has it all: great tequila selection, exceptionally knowledgeable staff, good, traditional Mexican eats, and prices that make you wonder how they stay in business. If owner Larry Auman starts telling tequila stories, listen up.
Coa Tequilería (Seattle, WA). The newest restaurant from the Carreon family, who have been in the business for three generations. The focus here is tequila, but the food is fantastic as well.
Tres (San Francisco and Roseville, CA). Formerly “Tres Agaves,” the re-christened “Tres” deserves it’s reputation as a tequila heavyweight. If there is a restaurant doing more in-depth staff training, we haven’t found it.
Agave (New York, NY). Tequila fans have a lot of great options in Manhattan, but for straight-up tequila sipping, this is our favorite. Jay has done a fantastic job with the bar here, and doesn’t keep his passion for tequila a secret.
Diego (Las Vegas, NV). Tucked deep within the MGM Grand, Diego is definitely worth the effort it takes to find it. An incredible tequila selection, great staff, and the most informative tequila menu we’ve seen.
Poquito’s (Seattle, WA). In a city making a habit of opening good tequila bars, Poquito’s stands out. A Capitol Hill-flavored shot of Jalisco, with tortas ahogadas, chapulines and the best tequila selection in the city.
