I admit there are lots of times I prefer a drink from an older & more-established producer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any new folks making booze who I think are doing a great job. Suerte Tequila is a great example. They’re a very new company who just started distribution to NYC (& they’re owned by Americans who are new to the trade), but they are already one of my favorites. Especially their Reposado- I’m a huge fan. I’ll take mine neat, with some sparkling mineral water to sip alongside.
