Tequila is a Mexican distilled spirit made from the Blue Agave plant. There are three main types of tequila which are determined by age:

  • Silver Tequila is bottled without being aged (< 2 Months)
  • Reposado is bottled after aging in wood barrels (2 – 12 Months)
  • Añejo is bottled after aging in wooden barrels for at least one year (=> 12 Months).

Tequila is commonly enjoyed by itself as a shot as wells as in cocktails including the Margarita and Tequila Sunrise.
