Jalisco, Mexico - Tequila is meant for sipping as much as shooting — meaning you don't need to be trashed in a bar to enjoy. This liquor is made from the blue agave plant found in Jalisco, Mexico, and has been refined over hundreds of years.

U4RIK Anejo $45
A Double Gold winner at the World Spirit Competition, the U4RIK Añejo is sweet and almost floral. Aged in specially selected oak barrels for two years, the spirit finishes with just a hint of whiskey flavor.
Gran Patron Burdeos $600
A shot costs approximately $35, making it one of the most expensive tequilas on the market. This handmade, luxury añejo is crafted from the finest 100 per cent Weber blue agave from the highlands of Jalisco, matured in a combination of new American and French oak barrels, and distilled again before it is racked.
AsomBroso Silver $40
Drinking the AsomBroso Silver Tequila is an experience, from the first whiff of fennel, licorice, anise, and dried herbs to the toasty and mellow finish. Aeration brings out the milk chocolate, olive brine, rye, and green olive flavors.
El Capo Extra-Aged Anñejo $150
This one lures you with the aroma of strong vanilla, caramel, oak, and almonds. Aged five years, it seals the deal with a robust body of walnut, chocolate, coffee, and a sprinkling of dried fruits.
Riazul Premium Anejo Tequila $59
After two distillations, the Riazul Premium Añejo ages in French oak barrels made from wood in the Citeaux forests of Burgundy, and features a medium toast. Agave, honey, vanilla, fruits and spices combine for a one-of-a-kind tequila.
