CLASSES OF TEQUILA

100% AGAVE &

TEQUILA MIXTO (MIXED)

Mixto Tequila contains a minimum of 51% Blue Agave, and the remaining 49% from other sugars (typically cane sugars).

By reading the label on the bottle you can tell which clasification it is in, as all Tequila that is made from 100% Blue Agave will say "Tequila 100% de agave" or "Tequila 100% puro de agave".

All other Mixto Tequila labels will only read "Tequila”.

INICIO is a Tequila of the most original kind: A Premium Tequila, which is authentically produced in traditional, artisan manners and made 100% from carefully selected agave azul.

The above two categories of Tequila are then divided into the following five types and are labeled as such:

mixto

SILVER & GOLD

Silver and Gold Tequila are typically Mixto (Mixed), where colorants and flavorings have been added prior to bottling.

 

These "young and adulterated" Tequilas are less expensive and used in many bars and restaurants for "mixed drinks”.

 

Mixto Tequila contains a minimum of 51% Blue Agave, and the remaining 49% from other sugars (typically cane sugars).
