Armero Tequila

Seven expressions?

What can this mean?

What evil magic is at work here?!

It can be overwhelming to see so many expressions of one tequila and, truth be told, we were a bit overwhelmed when we unpacked the samples of Armero Tequila.

But we’re always ready for a tequila related challenge and have a tequila geek squad that loves solving puzzles!

Check out the infographic below, created by tequila geek and taster, Rick Levy, and keep it handy as we spend the next several shows discussing all the expressions and tasting them in flights.

Last Tequila Standing – A Groundbreaking Tequila Reality Show


A Tequila Reality Show?

What? No Tequila Shots?

The creators of Last Tequila Standing only filmed their pilot season back in 2011.  From there, in the old school way of doing things, they sought to sell the program to a television network.  But the Latino markets they were approaching had no love for a tequila show that didn’t include shots.  They felt the world, or at least their audiences, wasn’t ready for such a thing.

Tequila History Preserved

Here at Tequila Aficionado, we knew better.  After years of discussions, we were finally given access to most of the show’s recorded materials. As this was not a Tequila Aficionado Media Production, we don’t expect to see another season but we’re thrilled that we were able to preserve these tequilas’ stories, personalities, and cocktails for posterity here at Tequila Aficionado Media.
The litmus test for most tequila start-ups is five years.  If you can make it in this business for that long, you’re in it for the long haul.  We’re very happy to see that many of these then “start-ups” are alive and kicking down doors five years later in the industry today!
