Críticas:

"The perfect read to accompany your tequila, mezcal, or pulque--all drinks made from the mature agave, the spiky Mexican succulent with a heart that can become distilled gold. Chantal Martineau has written a compelling travelogue, tasting guide, business analysis, and ecological primer that firmly places tequila and its cousins as worthy spirits beyond cheap college margarita drunks."--Mark Pendergrast, author of "Uncommon Grounds: ""The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World"

"Chantal Martineau ties our fate as Americans with the ecosystem of the agave, which is threatened, like our foodways, by shortsighted industrialization and corporate greed. The struggle is complicated as it relates to the tequila-loving gringo, and as one, I am deeply grateful for the way Martineau has portrayed it." --Jim Meehan, author of "The PDT Cocktail Book"

"This wonderfully written book illuminates a part of the spirits industry that even the most diehard aficionado might not know about."--Tom Acitelli, author of "The Audacity of Hops: The History of America's Craft Beer Revolution"

"Martineau is an adept guide, charming and deeply knowledgeable, to the intricate and fascinating world of agave-based spirits. With passion and authority, How the Gringos Stole Tequila argues that tequila and mezcal are not cheap firewater, but rather richly cultural and potentially threatened products worthy of connoisseurship."--Bryce T. Bauer, author of "Gentlemen Bootleggers: The True Story of Templeton Rye, Prohibition, and a Small Town in Cahoots"

"Martineau makes her nonfiction debut with this thoroughly researched study of what appears to be a growing trend in the spirit world: the rise of tequila from a low-end frat-party tipple to a high-end connoisseur's sipping drink."" Kirkus Reviews""
