Enter the vibrant world of Tequila with your guide, Tomas Estes—the original Tequila Ambassador. From his opening of Café Pacifico in Amsterdam, Europe’s first Mexican restaurant (and then eighteen more around the globe), to teaching about agave spirits in dozens of countries and launching his own Tequila brand, Tomas has dedicated his life to bringing quality Tequila to the world.

The Tequila Ambassador V.O. is the re-imagining and expansion of Tomas’ seminal 2012 book. This completely new project is a mix of practical information and personal storytelling, intimate memoir and inspiring philosophy, weaving between Tomas’ own exuberant life and the ever-expanding world of agave spirits. Featuring hundreds of candid photos, The Tequila Ambassador V.O. evokes a life well-lived—and shares the words of Tomas and those who were changed by his mentorship, knowledge, and love.

Engaging and informative for new Tequila drinkers and aficionados alike, this book is like pulling up a bar stool next to a friend who happens to know a thing or two about Tequila—and about life.

About the Author

Tomas Estes had a true love of Tequila that shone through all that he did, leaving an indelible mark on the world of spirits.

Tomas grew up on the east side of Los Angeles, where he was immersed in its vibrant Mexican culture. His passion for Tequila and Mexican heritage was ignited during frequent trips to Tijuana in his youth.

In Amsterdam in 1976, Tomas launched Café Pacifico, the first Mexican restaurant and bar in Europe. He went on to open eighteen more restaurants and bars in six cities, including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, Milan, and Sydney, each renowned for their Tequila and Tequila-based cocktails.

In 2008, Tomas founded Tequila Ocho, the world's first single-field Tequila, exploring the idea of terroir in agave growing. Tequila Ocho has since won numerous awards and is now sold in more than twenty-five countries.

In 2012 Tomas published The Tequila Ambassador, a seminal work on the subject of Tequila. This completely reimagined and expanded edition is now known as The Tequila Ambassador V.O.--this Version Originale or director's cut, as envisioned by Tomas himself, is poised to carry his legacy forward.
