Top 5 Tequilas for Cinco de Mayo

Top 5 Tequilas for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday that commemorates the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla. Because of its popularity in Mexico, tequila, made from blue agave, is often associated with this holiday. Tequila can be found in four main types which include, blanco, reposado, añejo and extra añejo. Now, let’s briefly break down how they each differ. 

Blanco tequila is unaged, has a clear color, and has a fresh and crisp taste, with notes of agave and citrus. Reposado tequila is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two months and has a light golden color. It has a smoother and more complex flavor than blanco tequila, with notes of vanilla and caramel. Añejo tequila is aged in oak barrels for at least one year, giving it a darker color and a rich, smooth flavor with notes of wood and spice. Extra Añejo tequila is aged in oak barrels for at least three years, and has a dark color and a complex flavor with notes of chocolate, tobacco, and dried fruit.
