Tequila Sheela isn’t just our favorite new name for a drag queen, it’s also our favorite new local booze.
In a city known for its barbecue, tacos and abundance of mobile phone stores and banks, it’s about time Dallas gets recognized for its world-class tequila.
That’s right, founded by Sheela Marshall and Natalie Merrick, Tequila Sheela is based in Dallas, but the spirit itself hails from the lush highlands of Amatitan in the Mexican state of Jalisco.
Made from organic blue agave, the premium small batch Blanco, Reposado and Añejo styles won a Double Gold and two Silver medals at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
The 80 proof booze can be found at a handful of area liquor stores, as well as restaurants, including Cedar Springs Tap House in the gayborhood and Celebration on Lovers Lane.
We love supporting local.
But we love drinking local even more.
