Find 700 kinds of tequila — and other intriguing Mexican spirits — at pioneering Moreno's Liquors

You’d have a tough time, however, locating such exotic spirits at most U.S. liquor stores. Your very best shot in Chicago would be to visit Moreno’s Liquors (3734 W. 26th St.).

    Find 700 kinds of tequila - and other intriguing Mexican spirits - at pioneering Moreno's Liquors
    In a small, dusty Mexico City neighborhood with streets so narrow Uber drivers hesitate to turn into them, you'll find Almamezcalera, the tasting room of Erick Rodriguez. We were there to sample agave distillates, poured from bottles lined up on the counter, each bearing the distinctive logo of a human heart sprouting an agave, the plant whose own heart - roasted, fermented and distilled - yields spirits like mezcal and tequila.
