Tequila

Currently a darling in the spirit world, tequila is famed for its earthy and smokey flavours. The worldwide love for this agave juice has further expanded in Hong Kong with the continuous launching of celebrity brands. Traditionally a Mexican national treasure, tequila can only be produced in one of the five Mexican states, including Michoacán, Jalisco, Nayarit, Guanajuato and Tamaulipas, and is required to be recognised by Mexico’s Consejo Regulador del Tequila (CRT), or Tequila Regulatory Council. Now, tequilas available on the market can be categorised into three main types: Blanco, reposado, and añejo—with two additional variations.

Tequila Blanco, also known as “silver” tequila sometimes, is an unaged tequila distilled from blue agave. For bottles labelled "100% blue agave", they are the key ingredients of a good Margarita. If you see a Blanco bottle labelled as Joven, it indicates a mix of aged tequilas with unaged ones.

Tequila Reposado is one that is aged in American or European oak barrels for at least two months and up to a year. Añejo, on the other hand, is one that has aged over a year. Sometimes you can even buy an extra Añejo that has been aged for 3 years. The longer a tequila is aged, the more suitable it is to be savoured neat. They also work amazingly as a base spirit for cocktail recipes, just like whiskeys.

Depending upon the region it is produced, tequilas can come in sweet, citrusy, mellowed sweetness or full of peppery spice with profound notes of oak and vanilla aromas - there is always a tequila bottle out there for every consumer to buy. Whether you are craving to sip and savour a neat shot of tequila or wish to make yourself an iconic Tequila Sunrise on a Friday night in, a bottle of tequila is all you need for the scene. Apart from that, tequila also offers various potential health benefits as a sub-product of agave juice. Compared to other liquors, tequilas tend to contain less sugar and calories.
