Although there are several Tequila categories, these are the best types of Tequila today. There's something for everyone!
White Tequila. The type of un-oaked Tequila you can use in cocktails or drink on its own while nibbling on a lime wedge. These are fiery spirits, but not necessarily of inferior quality.
Tequila Reposado. Aged for between 2 and 12 months. This medium-bodied spirit is the best of two worlds — agave-tasting white Tequila and well-aged Añejo. Sip or mix.
Añejo Tequila. Aged for between 1 and 3 years. Expect oaky vanilla and brown spices to dominate the nose and palate. Don't drink these with salt and lime but sip them slowly.
Tequila Añejo Cristalino. Crystal-clear Añejo Tequila has been filtered for a translucent look. You get the flavor complexity of Añejo Tequilas in every sip.
Extra Añejo Tequila. Aged for over 3 years. This type of Tequila can be expensive and as complex as fine whiskey or Cognac. Save this one for special occasions and sip it mindfully.
