It’s been a while since the famous saloon owner and courtesan Maria Gertrudis “Tules” Barceló was spotted around Santa Fe, but she was recently seen at the bar at El Farol on Canyon Road.
Of course, it wasn’t Doña Tules in the flesh; she died in 1852. But her image is gracing the bottles of a line of high-quality mezcal named in her honor.
With the governor’s proclamation shutting down bars, it might be a while before you can sip spirits in a public place. But guess what? There’s a virtual club that’s marketing the añejo mezcal online.
