At The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Heriberto Ovideo presides over a stellar selection of 108+ premium Agave tequilas, but the experience goes well beyond the expansive offerings and complimentary tastings at 6 p.m. daily. “Tequila is actually a very sophisticated spirit and I enjoy educating people about its finer qualities and providing recommendations on how to enjoy it,” he says. “Our goal is to make our guests comfortable with something they’ve never tried before, while also providing them with a memorable experience.” Did you know that tequila was North America’s first distilled drink? In addition to providing insight into the interesting history of making tequila, Ovideo teaches tasting practices, food pairings and how to create the perfect margarita, all under an exotic thatched-roof palapa built by the Miccosukee Tribe; 305.365.4286; Ritz-Carlton.com.
