Spirit Wednesday – Tequila

Scientifically speaking, tequila is made from the agave tequilana. Tequila is distilled in copper pot stills and the double-distilled unaged tequila is clear.

There are three main classifications of tequila. Blanco is the original style of tequila, Clear and unaged, it is usually bottled directly following distillation. Reposado or rested is applied to tequila that is aged three to twelve months. By law, reposado must be aged over sixty days, but it is never aged more than one year. Anejo on a label ensures that the tequila is aged for up to four years.
