Tequila Aficionados Unite
    #4177336 - 05/15/05 08:59 AM (12 years, 16 days ago)



Tequila: Nectar of the Blue Agave
Tequila is produced in Mexico under by very strict government regulations.  It is not made from a cactus plant as many people think, but from the sap of a succulent called the blue agave which is more closely related to the lily plant.

Tequila has gotten a bad rap!
Many people shy away from tequila because their experience with it involved drinking shots of something like Cuervo Gold.  This is not to say that Cuervo is bad tequila by any stretch, they are #1 for a very good reason.  Gold tequila can be harsh if you are doing shots with a hot burn on the way down that makes some people gag (to put it bluntly).  As you know, bad first impressions can have a lasting effect and some people will completely avoid tequila because of it.  Take some time to educate yourself about the different tequilas out there  and you will be quite surprised.  When you stop shooting tequila that should be in a mixed drink, you will probably discover a whole new appreciation for it.


Tequila: Four basic types.
There are four basic types of tequila.

Blanco Tequila
"White" tequila also referred to as Silver, Plato, or Plata.  Blanco is un-aged tequila right from the still without any exposure to to wood.  It is typically clear with a very distinct blue agave flavor. 

Gold Tequila
Also called Joven or Abocado.  This tequila is Blanco with colorings and/or flavorings added.  It is best used for mixing in drinks like Margarita's.

Reposado Tequila
Blanco that is aged for at least 2 months and up to 1 year in oak casks or vats.  The aging process mellows the tequila and adds flavor and color. 

A?ejo Tequila 
Blanco tequila that is aged in smaller amounts for more than one year.  These are the Cognac of tequilas and should be sipped. 



Tequila is not made from cactus juice!
Contrary to popular lore, tequila is not made from a cactus.  It is made from the pineapple-like heart (or pi?a) of the Blue Agave (Tequilana weber) succulent, a member of the lily family.  The Blue Agave takes about 8-10 years to mature to the point where it can be harvested by the Jimadores for use in making tequila.


If you don't see 100% De Agave,  it isn't.
Ordinary tequila must be made with at least 51% blue agave.  It can also contain colorings and flavorings to make it appear aged.  This type of tequila is usually used for mixing in drinks and is typically cheaper than 100% blue agave tequila.

100% blue agave tequila must be made from 100% blue agave juices.  As you saw in the  above classifications it can vary in color depending on how it is aged.  How can you tell if the tequila you are looking at is 100%?  Look on the label.  It will say 100% DE AGAVE  or 100% Blue Agave.  100% blue agave is generally more expensive than ordinary tequila.



What's with the worm in Tequila?
At some point the makers of mezcal put a worm in the bottle as a marketing gimmick.  Tequila doesn't have a worm in the bottle and the worm that is in mezcal doesn't have any mescaline or hallucinogenic properties. [Mushrooms take care of that department, as I'm sure we all know. :wink:]

 
My boss at work happens to be an old rich Mexican, and knows his Tequila. Before I talked to him, I always favored Patron as the No. 1 Tequila..
Me, him, and some co-workers were discussing tequilas, and he brought up his favored choice: Don Julio Tequila.

And ever since then..

Don Julio is the DON of Tequila.

Don Julio ranked No. 1 Tequila on Cocktail.com:

Tequila, it's still the ultimate liquor to do shots, with lemon and salt, of course.

I like silver the best, its my favorite hard liquor.

About the worm in mescal, did that tradition start as a way of proving the stuff had high alcohol content? (high alcohol=preserved worm)

Gee, Quervo is not on the list, i'm shocked.


Tequila is my favorite of alcohols. I've not drank many kinds, and as it stands now Casadores is my favorite.

Patron anejo is what I was drinking last night, I did at least more than 8 shots.. and no hangover. Indeed it IS like water.

Had I done this with, say, Cuervo gold... I could have a massive hangover, sick as hell, unless I diluted it with water-based liquids.

I love tequila!

Luckily its one of the few liquors I didn't severely abuse in the younger years and can still drink occasionally..

i almost bought a bottle of patron the other night. after trying the bit more expensive tequilas, i understand now why they're a little more expensive...they are so good. i will NEVER buy another bottle of jose cuervo or that other bullshit tequila.
