There are four types of tequilas

Manila Restaurant and Wine Bar discusses Tequila and Rum

None of the dozen or so shoppers who offered opinions seemed to know much about the product.

This doesn’t surprise Phil Bernstein, proprietor of Fine Wine Brokers Inc. in the Logan Square neighborhood. He does not sell any distilled spirits at his store but has spent many years observing the buying habits of the liquor-loving public.

“Once a trend starts, you will see a lot of competition. That’s why the shelves are filled with all sorts of new tequilas,” he says. “There really isn’t a lot of difference in the taste–it’s sort of like vodka–so what is attracting people is what I call the aesthetic of the product: the shape of the bottle, the design of the label. I notice that when people buy wines, they are drawn to the labels or the bottles. The same is true with tequila.”

The most expensive bottle of tequila at Sam’s was a Porfidio anejo in a handblown glass bottle with a small, colorful glass cactus inside. Price: $72.99.

Whatever the shape of the bottle or style of the label, there are four types of tequilas: silver, unaged and bottled within 60 days of distilling; gold, also unaged, with colorings and flavorings added; reposado, aged two months to a year; and anejo, aged for at least a year in oak barrels. Most tequila is produced in central Mexico near Guadalajara, and by Mexican law it must be made from Weber blue agave plants. The heart of the spiky plant, called the pina (pineapple), is steamed and the resulting brew, again by Mexican law, is distilled twice.

Mescal is produced in the mountainous region near Oaxaca. It is made from a different agave plant, the heart of which is baked in a rock pit for three days, then fermented and distilled in a centuries-old technique.

It is widely believed that mescal is stronger than tequila. That is not true. It is widely believed that mescal offers kinder hangovers than other liquors. Who knows? Considered by aficionados to be a more sophisticated and intricate drink than tequila, it is still suffering an image problem.
