San Francisco, US
Family run San Francisco temple to tequila Tommy’s has been in business for more than 50 years, led by the passionate Julio Bermejo, son of the original Mexican restaurant’s owners. Today, with more than 300 tequilas to choose from – all of them 100 per cent agave – Tommy’s has one of the best selections on the planet, making a pilgrimage here high on every bartender’s bucket list. Tasting sessions are legendary, as is the staff’s willingness to teach guests about the spirit. The agave-syrup-enhanced margarita, whose recipe remains unchanged since 1965, is a great place to start.
