FAQs: Best Reposado Tequila Frequently Asked Questions

What is tequila?

Tequila is a distilled alcoholic mezcal spirit that comes from the agave plant. It's only made with Blue Weber agave, native to Mexico. In fact, Mexican law states that tequila is only allowed to be produced in the country (specifically in the Jalisco, Nayarit, Guanajuato, Michoacán, and Tamaulipas regions).

After seven years typically, when the blue agave matures, jimadors (agave farmers) harvest it by removing the leaves and exposing the hearts (piñas), which are then sent to distilleries and turned into tequila.

What is tequila's history?

Tequila's roots go back to 1000 B.C. with a sweet fermented drink that came from the agave plant's sap, called pulque. Later, the Aztecs adapted the drink but it was quickly appropriated by the Spanish in the 1400s, during their invasion. They distilled spirits using mud and agave.

Then, in the early 1600s, the first mass distillery was built by the Marquis de Altamira in Tequila, Jalisco. In 1758, the Cuervo family began distilling tequila, and in 1873 the Sauza family did the same. Cuervo and Sauza are still two common tequilas you'll find today.

How is tequila made?

Tequila is made by some version of these steps:

  • Gather ingredients. The two main tequila categories are “puro”, made from Weber azul agave, and “mixto”, made from at least 51% agave (the remaining 49% is sugar).
  • Ferment. The wash is mixed and the tequila is fermented for 5-7 days. Once it’s ready, it no longer produces vapors or tastes sweet.
  • Distill. The tequila is strained to remove any solid material, which can affect its purity. Pot stills are fired up, and the tequila wash goes through two distillations. In the first, there is no separation of the heads, hearts, and tails, while in the second, the distillate is separated.
  • Collect distillate. The first 35% of the distillate is discarded (foreshots and heads), the next 30% is kept (hearts), and the remaining 35% is removed from the wash but kept to become its own wash later.
  • Age. There is no legal aging requirement, and different tequilas have different aging timelines. That said, blancos typically aren’t aged but rest for up to 60 days, jovens are mixed with aged tequilas, reposados are aged from 2 months to under 1 year, añejos are aged for 1-3 years, and extra añejos are aged for longer than 3 years.

What to Look for in the Best Reposado Tequila

There are a few key factors to consider when you’re shopping for a great reposado.

Flavor of the agave

The agave’s spicy and fruity notes are at the core of great tequila, and no production process or amount of aging should take away from these flavors.

Smoothness

When tequilas are aged in barrels, their roughness from distillation is removed. When it comes to reposados, you should taste flavor and notice character, but they should still be smooth and easy to sip.

NOM identification number

NOM stands for “Norma Oficial Mexican”, which is the official identification number for the distillery in which a tequila is made, and every bottle should state this. You can use the number to learn more about the distillation process.
