When the Copper Canyon restaurant opened in Atlantic Highlands in 1998, it boasted Southwest-style cooking and the largest selection of tequila around. The menu went over great, but the tequila was a tough sell.
Today the Copper Canyon stands as a symbol of just how far tequila has come in a decade. The restaurant’s tequila selection runs to 150 varieties — every one made from 100 percent blue agave. Blue agave is to tequila what single malt is to fine Scotch.
