    As the seasons change so do our drink preferences.  Woolly jumpers and raincoats turn our thoughts from Aperols and lagers to something a little stronger and shorter.

Tequila enjoys a long history with its precursor, a milky, frothy agave drink known as pulque, dating all the way back to Mesoamerican times circa 1000 B.C., when indigenous Mexican tribes would commonly harvest and ferment it. It wouldn’t be until 16th Century A.D., however, that the contemporary tequila we know and love would be first produced, around a territory of land that wouldn’t officially become known as Tequ...
