Types of Tequila

AGAVE  PLANT

AGAVE  PLANT

 

Traditionally, it is made in the Tequila region of Mexico from the fermented juices of the blue Agave plant.

Blanco (White or Silver) – An unaged tequila that goes directly from distillation to the bottle.

Oro (Gold) – This is when caramel flavors are added to Blanco tequila in order to smooth out the taste.

Reposado (Rested) – In order to be labeled as a Reposado, the tequila must be aged for at least two months in oak barrels.

Anejo (Aged) – The Anejo is aged in oak barrels for at least one year.

Reserva – Although not a category in itself, it is a special Añejo that certain distillers age in oak casks for up to 8 years.
