A good tequila is worth its weight in gold; brewed using natural blue agave and distilled. It is then bottled or aged in wooden barrels to mature. This gives it a clean, smooth taste and smoky tones.
Tequila is a celebratory drink. From the classic margarita, to a heavenly glass of the golden stuff it is wonderful, and complements Mexican food and dancing perfectly. Forget any student tragedies you might have had, our guide to the best tequila brands will ensure you get the most out of this wonderful drink. So dust of the sombreros and crack out the carnitas it’s party time.
