Profiles in Agave Spirits Volume I

Profiles in Agave Spirits: The people who create and contribute to the tequila, mezcal, sotol, bacanora and other agave spirits industries (in English and Spanish).

The Profiles in Agave Spirits series of books is an encyclopedia for education, entertainment, reference and posterity with each volume including both English and Spanish translations.

By creating a Who’s Who in Agave Spirits, we provide a ready reference for those in the industry, as well as those researching or hoping to break into the industry. We also believe that this industry deserves to have a lasting record of historical significance beyond oral history and urban legend.
