About the Author

Sarah Bowen is Associate Professor of Sociology at North Carolina State University.


"There is not much published about the two iconic Mexican spirits, except for consumer books and tasting guides to different brands. Bowen's perspective is fresh and thought-provoking." -- Fabio Parasecoli The Huffington Post "This is far from a breezy read, and that's exactly the point. In today's spirits landscape, where a new celebrity tequila brand seems to launch each month and mezcal has gone viral, it's rare that we pause to consider the consequences of our adoration ... Offers an exhaustively researched, academic look at the forces that threaten these two great spirits that should be essential reading for anyone with an interest in protecting all that makes them great." Punch "Engaging ... A top gift book for the beverage drinker." -- Dean Tudor Gothic Epicures VinCuisine
