Blanco Tequila
A Blanco, also known as Plata or silver tequila, is among the top tequilas most people enjoy.

If you are new to enjoying tequila, you should start with reposado tequila. It can work astonishingly well with any top cocktail recipe. The Reposado tequila offers a caramel-like flavour and an excellent golden hue.

3. Anejo

Añejo Tequila
In the world of tequila, the title of Anejo is an accolade earned through patience and precision. Each drop of Anejo tequila transforms and matures gracefully for a minimum of one year within the embrace of an oak barrel. Unlike other tequila ageing processes, Anejo tequila requires a barrel that can’t exceed 600 litres in size. This helps the spirit mix up with the wood and form a smoother flavour. You may experience deep flavours such as caramel, chocolate, toasted oak, rich agave sweetness, and dried fruits in this tequila. You can’t ignore it to make the best tequila cocktail out of this.

4. Extra Anejo tequila

Aged not just for one but three exquisite revolutions around the sun. This tequila option crafts an experience that whispers secrets of the ages with each sip.  Due to the maximum ageing, this Anejo tequila becomes more refined.

The strongest aromas and richest amber colour of the tequila ensure a top experience when you consider it in a cocktail on the party menu.
