Top 10 Tequilas
A Mexican Tradition
The 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, though long before that the Aztecs were making another fermented agave beverage, known as pulque. Today, tequila is made exclusively from blue agave, and offers a more refined finish than its smoky cousin mezcal, which is also produced from the agave plant. Far from its reputation as a cheap drink for college kids, tequila is truly an international spirit meant to be sipped and savored. As true connoisseurs of the Mexican spirit will tell you, this refined and sophisticated beverage carries with it a long history, making the bottles on this list something to truly celebrate.
