A clean and transparent taste of white tequila

Citrus notes, for example, lime, taste best with blanco.
Young tesla anejo
This is a golden drink that is created by combining white tequila with one of its aged types. For a better effect, it can be diluted with water. If you want to dilute not only its taste but also it’s color and aroma, you can add caramel color or sugar syrup. A natural oak extract will give a subtle woody shade. If you’re not making this mix yourself, make sure the place you’re ordering it from actually has aged tequila and isn’t hiding low-quality alcohol behind a cheap dye.
When aging matters
Want a smooth and sweet tesla tequila? Then give it at least two months of aging in a white oak barrel. Natural and complex flavors of drinks are guaranteed! And if you increase the aging period, then tequila will delight you with rich yellowish color, in which bright citrus notes, soft accents of dried apple, sweet taste of vanilla, and spiciness of cinnamon are collected.
