Top 10 Luxury Tequilas

Finest Tequilas on the Market

One of North America's first homegrown distilled spirits, tequila was initially produced by Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century, although long before that the Aztecs were making another fermented agave beverage, known as pulque in Mexico.

Today, tequila is made exclusively from blue agave, and offers a more refined finish than its smoky cousin mezcalwhich is also produced from the agave plant. Far from its reputation as a cheap drink for college kids, tequila is an international spirit meant to be savored.
