It's not secret that I'm in love with the Corrido line of tequilas. In my opinion, it's the best tequila out there for the money.
During the time of U.S. Prohibition, the Corrido, a musical form of Mexican folklore, often honored the tequilero, or tequila smugglers, who gained popularity along the border. The "smugglers" of Corrido tequila are hoping for a similar popularity.
Last week at the Indy Spirits Expo in San Francisco, I had the chance to try the new Tequila Corrido.
