Whether you’re a fan of a tangy Paloma or devotee of sipping agave spirits neat, National Tequila Day is the perfect occasion to switch up your go-to expression and try something new – but which bottles are worth buying?
Earlier this year, we held our annual Tequila & Mezcal Masters blind-tasting competition to determine some of the best agave spirits on the market. The Spirits Business editor Melita Kiely was joined by Eduardo Gomez, founder of Tequila Fest and director of mexgrocer.uk, to judge a multitude of Tequilas across styles, awarding accolades to the best.
Here, we bring you seven of the top-performing expressions from the tasting – read on for our picks.
