Tequila is made exclusively in Mexico and comes solely from the blue agave plant. Whether served neat, as a shot with a lime, or in a Margarita, tequila’s versatility makes it a general crowd pleaser.
The Mexico region most famous for tequila production is Jalisco, where blue agave grows the richest. Depending on the elevation of where it is grown, the blue agave can take on differing taste profiles. If a product is made with only blue agave, it is termed a “100% Blue Agave Tequila.” There are many types of tequila, each unique flavor is based on the aging of the spirit. The longer the tequila ages, the more color and tannins the final product will have. There are five main types of tequila:
Taste Profile: Has the liveliest agave presence.
Taste Profile: Smooth, slightly sweet taste.
