There are two categories of tequila: 100% agave and mix, which consists of 51% agave and 49% other sugars. Produced from the blue agave plant, tequila has a unique taste profile and changes based on the style. Blancos have heavier fruit notes, while those aged in wood barrels are sweeter with hints of caramel, vanilla and honey. Enjoy in a classic Margarita or neat.

White or Blanco

Blanco tequila can be bottled right after distillation, often blending with water to reduce the alcohol proof. It can be either 100% agave or blended with grain to create a mixto.

Reposado

Reposado is tequila that is “rested” for at least two months in oak vats or barrels. Most reposados are 100% agave, but can be made as a mixto.

Añejo

Añejo is the Spanish word for “aged.” Añejo tequila must be aged in oak barrels for at least one year. Most añejos are 100% agave but can be made as a mixto.

Extra Añejo

Gold Tequila

Usually labeled gold tequila, due to the addition of caramel coloring to darken the liquid. The only difference between gold and silver tequila is the color from the caramel.
