History

Tequila is a distilled spirit made from the blue agave plant, the history of tequila dates back to the pre-Columbian era when the Aztecs used the sap of the agave plant to make fermented beverages. After the Spanish conquistadors arrived in Mexico in the 16th century, they brought with them the process of distillation, which allowed for the creation of the first true tequila. Today, tequila is enjoyed in a variety of ways, from sipping it neat to using it as a base for cocktails like the Margarita.

How Tequila is Made

The process of making tequila involves harvesting the agave plant, which is then roasted to break down the complex carbohydrates and turn them into simple sugars. The roasted agave is then mashed and fermented to create a liquid called must, which is distilled twice to create tequila. There are two main types of tequila: 100% agave tequila, which is made solely from blue agave, and mixto tequila, which is made from a combination of blue agave and other sugars.

Types of

  • Blanco Tequila - Bottled immediately following distillation, some are aged for a short period of time.
  • Reposado Tequila - Tequila aged between 2 to 12 months in oak barrels.
  • Joven Tequila - A mixture of Blanco and Reposado tequilas.
  • Añejo Tequila - Tequilas aged between 1 to 3 years in oak barrels. Extra Añejo is aged 3 years or more.
  • Mixto Tequila - Tequila containing less than 100% blue agave, usually mixed with sugars or other spirits.

WHAT DOES TEQUILA TASTE LIKE?

Tequila has a complex and distinct taste that varies depending on the type of tequila and how it is aged. Blanco tequilas are generally crisp and clean with a slight sweetness and a peppery finish, while reposado and añejo tequilas have a more complex flavor profile with notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak. Overall, tequila has a unique taste that is both earthy and sweet, with a subtle hint of smokiness.

For a traditional tequila experience, try a tequila shot followed by a sip of sangrita, a spicy tomato-based chaser. Alternatively, you can enjoy tequila in a margarita or Paloma cocktail, both of which are delicious and refreshing ways to enjoy this iconic spirit.
