Top 10 Best Tequila FAQs

What is tequila made from?

Tequila is made from the Blue Weber agave plant and, under Mexican law, within Jalisco and a few other Mexican states. Once the agave is harvested, it’s cooked, ground, and fermented. The yeast converts the sugar to alcohol, and the mixture is distilled into tequila.

What are the types of tequila?

There are five types of tequila: blanco, reposado, añejo, extra añejo, and cristalino. Blanco is unaged, reposado is aged between two and twelve months in oak barrels, añejo ages for over a year but less than three, and extra añejo ages for over three years. Cristalino tequilas are usually aged but charcoal-filtered to make them clear and free of woodsy barrel flavors.

What makes a good tequila?

Make sure you’re drinking good tequila by looking for these things on the bottle’s label:

  • “Hecho en Mexico” (made in Mexico) and “CRT” (approved by the Consejo Regulador del Tequila, which is the regulator that oversees tequila production)
  • A four-digit “NOM” (Norma Oficial Mexicana) number, or unique identifier for tequilas and where they’re made
