What is a Gateway Tequila?
“Gateway Tequila” is a term that is often used by Alex Perez and Mike Morales when describing infused, diffused, or otherwise altered tequilas. In my education as a tequila drinker, I’ve tasted quite a few different tequilas. Some were sugar-coated and lingered long after a sip while others were warm and dry with a long finish to savor. I’ve come to the point in my own education where I enjoy the long, warm finish but some women (and men) still need a little something sweet as they learn to sip agave spirits.
