Tequila

A distilled spirit made from the blue Agave or Agave Azul, and produced only in Mexico.

A distilled spirit made from the blue Agave or Agave Azul, and produced only in five areas of Mexico. Tequila can be taken on its own or in a cocktail.

Main types of Tequila

Blanco (white) or plata (silver) – bottled directly after distillation or rested in stainless steel or neutral oak barrels to allow oxidisation for up to two months. This type has a bold taste and works well in cocktails.

Joven (young) or Oro (gold) – sometimes blends of unaged and aged tequilas but more commonly unaged tequilas produced in the same way as blancos but given a golden hue from the addition of colouring and additives for flavour.

Reposado (rested) – aged in oak barrels of unspecified size or vats called ‘pipones’ for a minimum of two months and up to a maximum of 12 months. This is best for mixed drinks and sipping.

Añejo – aged in oak casks with a maximum capacity of 600 litres for at least one year, or between one and three years. These often have a toasty, vanilla and citrus flavour.

Extra Añejo – aged at least three years in oak barrels with a maximum capacity of 600 litres. These generally have more of a smoky flavour and can be compared to fine French Cognacs with similar price tags.

Curados – a new category launched in 2006 – tequilas flavoured with natural ingredients such as orange, lemon, strawberry, pear and pineapple. A minimum 25% agave spirit must be used with 75% of the fermentable sugars coming from cane or corn and the addition of sweeteners, colouring and/or flavourings up to 75ml per litre.

Helps control blood sugar levels and prevent type 2 diabetes. help improve bone health and density. promote longevity and even stop or reverse aging. prevent and help treat colds, the flu, and other types of infection. The evidence is in. Tequila is the healthier choice of alcohol compared to other distilled spirits like vodka, rum, or whiskey. Unlike these types of liquor, tequila has lower levels of impurities and has agavins, making it a better option.

Then you can definitely say that the tequila is 12% stronger than the vodka. By and large, there are more examples of strong tequilas than strong vodkas. Vodka has been made at 80 proof for centuries, and though there are stronger vodkas around, it takes a lot of work to make them taste good too.

So you need to drink way less tequila to get the same blood alcohol concentration than you would drinking wine or beer. BAC also increases quicker when you drink faster. So taking tequila shots gets you drunker faster, and once you're intoxicated, your ability to say no and understand your limit decreases drastically.

Pure tequila, as opposed to normal mixed tequilas, do not have as many congeners or sugars. Thus, minimal hangovers.
