Cartel Hour by Cask Cartel 5: A Los Angeles look at Tequila with Ben Molina of Angelisco
Play • 1 hr 20 min

On this episode we are diving into the world of Los Angeles Tequila, we’ve put together a super interesting tasting with some star studded makers of the blue agave spirits. We’ll talk all about the different producing regions of tequila and what makes it different from Mezcal, along with an interesting rule that sadly allows additives in many grandfathered in tequilas. We’re joined by Ben Molina, known for his work with the Oaxacan bar Cinco out in Westchester and as the founder of Angelisco Tequila.
