One of my favorite personalities and mentors in the Tequila world, Tomas Estes has finally released his long anticipated book, The Tequila Ambassador, which gives you a welcomed and intelligent look into the world of agave spirit. The work is excellent and the photography by Simon Difford shines. Buy it. Enjoy it.
