Tequila

Our trio of tequila gold, tequila silver and tequila reposado

Tequila comes in variations that each have their unique flavours. We can supply tequila in 1000 litre IBCs, 200-250 litre HDPE drums and 25,000 litre ISO tanks.

What is Tequila?

Tequila is made from the blue agave plant, which is native to hot and arid regions in Mexico. The agave plants are chopped up, and cooked so their taste transforms from starchy to sweet. The agave water is then fermented and distilled, resulting in tequila as the final product. There are two main types of tequila: 100% blue agave tequila and tequila mixto. The tequila mixto contains a minimum of 51% agave.

An increase in demand for Tequila

Tequila has been around since the 16th century, but is still very popular today. It is often added to cocktails to give them a fuller body or of course consumed straight. Technavio's analysts forecast the global tequila market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.61% during the time period of 2017-2021.

Tequila Mixto Silver

This tequila has silver, even slightly blue highlights and a great body. This tequila silver has an intense and powerful fragrance. The cooked agave is expressed in its entirety, capped by delicate herbal tones such as mint, eucalyptus, hints of fruit and a mild buttery note result in an aromatically elegant harmony.

Tequila Mixto Gold

This tequila gold is bright and clear with a faint amber colour. It has silver and orange highlights and a great body. It’s fragrance shows hints of cooked and raw agave, caramel tones, citric and herbal aromas. Its herbal origins are confirmed in its taste with a sweet finish. Our tequila gold is slightly spicy, more so in the nose than in the palate.

Tequila Reposado 100% Agave

Our tequila reposado has a straw-yellow gold color with silver and gold hues. Its fragrance reflects its herbal personality with mint, raw agave, and hints of grass. This tequila reposado has a slight olive taste, while the subtle cooked agave aroma recalls spicy notes coupled with delicate vanilla and caramel aromas. This tequila is well-balanced for the palate.

Tequila in Europe

Consejo Regulador del Tequila or CRT

Tequila is a spirit by name and by law, meaning strict requirements must be met. The CRT is a certification for tequila bottlers. This certification includes the bottlers not being allowed to age or otherwise mature the tequila and has various other requirements such as copy of the Trademark Registery Title. We can supply more detailed information on the CRT upon request.


Legal requirements

Mexican law states that tequila can only be produced in the state of Jalisco and limited regions in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas.

Mexico holds the exclusive international right to the term "tequila". The United States officially recognizes that spirits called "tequila" can only be produced in Mexico, bulk amounts can be exported handled under the CRT.

The consejo Regulador del tequila is a inter professional organization compromising all actors and production staff associated with the Tequila production.

Tequila most often has 38 – 40% alcohol content (76 – 80 proof), but can be produced to have anything from 31% to 55% alcohol content (62 to 110 proof).
