Ask a group of tequila drinkers what the best tequila is, and you're sure to spark a passionate debate. There are several top tequilas made today, and what constitutes the best is a matter of personal taste. One may be bolder than another. One may be smoother than another. With that in mind, there are a few qualities that top shelf tequila will naturally have.
Tequila is a spirit, which is distilled from the fermented sugar juices of blue agave plants found in 180 municipalities authorized by the Standard Official Mexican Norm. All municipalities in Jalisco and some of the municipalities in the Guanajuato, Michoacan, Nayarit and Tamaulipas States are authorized. Most people think tequila comes from Tequila, in the Jalisco region, but tequila can come from any of the municipalities authorized to produce the liquor.
They are then bottled at the source. Anything less will be an inferior tequila. The best tequilas will be easily drinkable with a stimulating bite as they go down the throat, and should give the drinker a warm, pleasant feeling. Lesser tequilas may be scratchy or burn the throat.
