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:

Blanco | Known as plata or silver tequila that has been rested and aged in stainless steel tanks for up to 60 days.

Taste Profile: Has the liveliest agave presence.

Gold | Flavors and colorants have been added prior to bottling. This type of tequila tends to be less expensive and used for mixed drinks.

Taste Profile: Smooth, slightly sweet taste.

Añejo | This tequila is aged from one to three years in oak barrels no larger than 600 liters.

Taste Profile: Deeper in flavor and richer due to the oak influence.

Extra Añejos | This tequila is aged for a minimum of three years in oak barrels no larger than 600 liters.

Taste Profile: The flavor leans more toward bourbon thanks to the oak.

Reposado | The tequila is rested for a minimum of two months and up to 12 months in wood containers of any size.

Taste Profile: More body than the blanco style with hints of caramel and vanilla.
