1 — Make sure you choose a bottle of tequila that uses 100% Blue Agave. Many brands will attempt to cut costs using cheaper, more accessible agave alternatives, but Weber Blue Agave is a necessity for any authentic bottle of tequila. Number JUAN uses the finest, fully-matured blue agave and does not depend on a diffuser to speed up our production process. This expert attention to detail ensures every sip is smooth and bursts with natural flavors.
2 — Always try to steer clear of additives. Authentic tequila does not need added colors or enhanced flavors if it undergoes a proper distillation and aging process. Additional ingredients, such as “caramel coloring,” are a sign that the brand sacrificed the quality of its tequila for production speed. Number JUAN Tequila does not use additives, and our tequilas’ rich caramel colors naturally develop as it ages in oak barrels. The tequila absorbs the woody essence and slowly changes color over time.
3 — Jalisco, Guanajuato, Nayarit, Tamaulipas, and Michoacan are all known for their exceptional agave, and high-quality tequila brands are proud to promote their connection to these regions. If a brand does not advertise its production location or showcases an entirely different area, it is most likely not authentic tequila. Our Number JUAN Tequila bottles proudly promote the phrase “Hecho en Mexico,” which means “Made in Mexico,” to showcase that we use the finest agave to create a delicious, unmatched flavor in every sip.
4 — Lastly, customer feedback is one of the easiest ways to decipher a good tequila from a bad one. We always recommend researching tequila before investing in a bottle to learn more about the brand. If you see an array of positive reviews and they satisfy the above criteria, there is an excellent chance you are investing in a high-quality bottle of tequila you will love.
