I was on London Live Weekend news speaking about Christmas cocktails, and of course Shaken. Have a look:
Mark gets in-depth on tequila and mezcal with Tequila Ocho’s Jesse Estes. A Drinks Galore interview.
What actually is tequila? How is it made? What is mezcal and what’s the difference? How can you tell if your tequila is 100% agave and why does this matter? And what’s with this worm thing anyway?
Find out all you ever wanted to know about how agave spirits are made, and what makes one of the most misunderstood spirits seem much more enjoyable and alluring in this video interview.
