  • Gold: Value tequilas that get their color from added caramel colorings.
  • Blanco (aka Silver): Unaged, clear tequila.
  • 100 Percent Blue Agave: Premium tequila made with 100% certified blue agave. It has no added colors, flavors or sugars. May be Blanco, Añejo or Reposado.
  • Reposado (aka Rested): Aged 60-364 days in wooden barrels (like wine) - the barrel provides the golden color.

  • Extra-Añejo (aka Reserva/Reserved): Aged 3 years+ in wooden barrels (which are often secondhand bourbon barrels) - copper or amber in color.
