When traveling, I always make it a rule to drink like the locals. That means lots of wine in Italy, beer in Germany, and of course, tequila in Mexico! Tequilas vary wildly in price and quality, from cheap shots of the tequila blanco variety to the more expensive and sophisticated sipping tequilas, like extra añejo, which is aged for at least 3 years in oak barrels.
I recently had the chance to sample a few different varies of tequila at a tasting in Playa del Carmen’s Tequila Town — a local bar, restaurant, and tequila boutique. Carlos (Carlito) Gonzales is the tequila expert at Tequila Town, and he has a legitimate certification to prove it. Check out this video, where Carlito explains the differences between tequila blanco, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo, and we get to sample shots of all of the above, including the delicious, limited edition tequila, Hijo Predilecto (Favorite Son).
Tequila Town is located on Constituyentes at 1st Avenue in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
