Gone are the days when tequila was thought of as a late night shot, something to knock back without a second thought during a night out. Nowadays, tequila has become a drink that is designed to be enjoyed, to be sipped and savoured.
There are a wide variety of different tequilas out there in the market at the moment, all of which have their own special spin on the spirit. To help find your favourite, we have put together our top picks in the tequila world!
Not only is this particular tequila distilled twice, but it is also aged for three years in holly oak barrels. The flavour is said to be smooth and creamy with some definite caramel and vanilla tones. Not only this, but the rich volcanic soils of the area that it is produced is thought to give this tequila a fruity aroma.
One of the best parts of this tequila is that it is made with traditional techniques in Mexico. The area that this tequila is produced in is known to have some of the best conditions in the world, which gives a smooth tequila that has an almost citrus like flavour. It is recommended that you try this tequila on the rocks.
The most eye catching part of this tequila has to be the day of the dead themed skull bottle, but this doesn’t mean that the tequila inside doesn’t stand up to the test! In fact, once you crack open the unique and interesting bottle you will find a spicy, white tequila that is silky and delicate although still able to pack a peppery punch!
This tequila is one known for being rich and golden with a distinct caramel aroma. It is packed full of brown spices and tropical fruits which gives a long and rich finish after every single sip. Perfect for someone who loves to indulge themselves in a high quality tequila, this 18 month aged variety is a definite must for those who are fans of tequila!
The name of this tequila is taken from the number of hours that it takes to produce. From the initial cultivation of the Agave to the bottling of the gloriously golden copper liquid.
