These bottles are meant to be savored one sip at a time. Tequila is a distilled spirit made from the agave plant. The liquor can only be produced in designated areas of Mexico. Today, it is one of the most popular liquors in the world, though it's most often consumed in Mexico and the U.S. While tequila is the essential ingredient in margaritas and tequila shots are very popular, there are many other cocktail recipes in which it can be mixed.
What Does Tequila Taste Like?
The taste of tequila will vary depending on where the agave was grown as well as the type of tequila. Blanco tequilas offer the purest taste, with an earthy, semi-sweet flavor that is distinctly agave. Tequila made in the lowlands is fruitier and earthier while tequila from the highlands is greener and brighter. With barrel aging, tequila begins to take on oaky flavors of varying degrees.
