Julio Bermejo, tequila pioneer and creator of the Tommy's Margarita cocktail

The Tommy's Margarita is one of only 16 cocktails that have been officially recognised as 'New Era Drinks' by the International Bartenders Association.

It was created by Julio Bermejo in 1990 at the restaurant founded by his parents in San Francisco, USA.

Under Julio's influence, Tommy's Mexican Restaurant moved towards a singular focus on 100% agave tequilas, as opposed to what are known as mixto tequilas, in which distillers supplement the agave with cheaper sugars.

This crusade brought global recognition for Tommy's as the world's leading tequila bar, honoured six times in The World's 50 Best Bars list since 2000.

Julio was in Australia recently to judge the Patron Perfectionists cocktail competition, and thanks to Patron Tequila, I was able to catch up with him to record this interview that I'm delighted to share with Drinks Adventures listeners.

Drinks Adventures is a new podcast for adventurous drinkers of beer, wine, spirits, cider… and everything in between.

The impetus for the podcast is the many exciting trends we are currently witnessing across all categories of premium drinks.

Winemakers, brewers and distillers are increasingly experimenting and collaborating with one another on products that blur the definition of what’s in your glass like never before.

Such hybrid products are playing to drinkers who are increasingly open-minded and adventurous and enjoying a wide array of different drinks to suit different occasions, rather than identifying with one particular category.

Today’s drinker is consuming less alcohol overall, and instead spending more on higher quality products that deliver on flavour and are underpinned by authentic stories.

The people who produce and champion these fine drinks are the talent you will be hearing from on this podcast.

Drinks Adventures is produced and hosted by drinks writer James Atkinson.
