On the Tequila Trail

In honor of National Tequila Day, I’m reposting our On the Tequila Trail video series. Cheers!

Join Chef Mark and Jennifer as they explore the Amitatan Valley of Jalisco, Mexico to discover the true soul of Tequila, from harvesting agave plants to quizzing people on the streets of NYC about their Tequila knowledge. Main lesson learned: Sip, never slam, fine Tequila.

Episode 1: The Soul of Tequila
Don Enrique Partida, who has spent his life growing blue agave, shares his poetic expression and passion for the plant. His estate-grown agave is cultivated, roasted and distilled to make Partida Tequila — and you’ll get to see every step of the fascinating process. But you won’t find any worms!

Episode 2: Rocks, No Salt – Luscious Tequila Cocktails

Episode 3: Sip It, Don’t Slam It

Episode 4: Tequila Re-Education

Episode 5: At the B.A.R.
