Tequila has grown into one of the biggest and trendiest spirits in the United States. It seems like every week a new brand launched by a celebrity, restaurateur or multi-national beverage giant hits the market. In this seemingly saturated segment, how can a small producer stand out? That was the challenge confronting Sean Conley, the creator of Mama’s Boy Infusions. Conley has years of experience bartending in Los Angeles. He knew the bad reputation of poorly made tequila and set out to change opinions. After years of tasting, mixing and refining ideas, he came up with something special. His tequila uses a unique bottling process that infuses tequila with fresh fruits and chili peppers.
tequila and Jimmy Shaw’s Loteria Grill
joined forces for a series of tastings that paired food selections with the premium tequila. Herradura
is one of the oldest makers of fine tequilas and Loteria Grill
is well respected in Los Angeles for their authentic Mexican cuisine. What set the series in motion was Shaw’s fondness for the Herradura
brand and his custom designed signature private reserve double barrel reposado that was bottled recently and introduced at the tasting series.
