Tequila Aficionado Exclusive Series

Have you seen Tequila Aficionado’s series on Women in the Tequila Industry by Tequila Journalist, M.A. “Mike” Morales?

From Bikini Babes to Boss Ladies

The contributions of women who create some of the amazing spirits we enjoy, direct production and distillation, support educational efforts, own brands we love, and otherwise contribute to the tequila industry are often overlooked beyond the 80’s throwback bikini-babe marketing efforts of behind-the-times brands.  (Perhaps that’s a bit harsh, but when women make 80% of the buying decisions in America today, don’t you think brands would be better served by changing their marketing approach with the times?)
