Introducing Bertha González , the “First Lady of tequila”

On this Cinco de Mayo, we thought it would be fitting to introduce you to the “first lady of tequila” Bertha González Nieves. CEO and Co-Founder of Casa Dragones Tequila Company, González Nieves produces sipping tequila made up of 100% blue agave joven tequila. She broke the glass ceiling in the male-dominated tequila industry when she became the first woman to be recognized as a “Maestra Tequilera” by the Academia Mexicana de Catadores de Tequila. González Nieves shares her inspirational story of how she turned her passion for tequila production into a successful business at Salinas Restaurant in New York City with NBC Latino contributor Isabel Lopez.
