Top 3 BEST Tequila You Need to be Drinking Right Now!

There are so many tequila brands out there, and its hard to know which ones are actually worth your time and money. In this video I will show you the 3 best brands you should be drinking. Tequila is one of the most popular spirits out there and so many brands are capitalizing on it. Celebrities far and wide have tried to make a quick buck by selling inferior products and there are so many bad brands out there.

The three brands I cover in this video are all family owned and run, free of additives and are all well worth your money.

El Tequileno has been a mainstay in Mexico since 1959, and they are one of the OG Producers. They are a household name in Mexico, though not quite as popular yet in the U.S, they are growing quickly. They produce a wide range of expressions, such as the Paltino, Reposado, Anejo as well as some more rarer expressions.

El Tesoro has been around for over 80 years making incredible tequila. They produce their brand using the old school and traditional method of crushing the agave with a Tahona, which is a giant concrete or stone wheel that is pulled by donkey or horse.

Fortaleza has been around for over 125 years and 5 generations of the same family have been keeping their traditions alive and well. The family did sell the original brand before another generation created the Fortaleza brand and started producing tequila using their family methods and recipes again.

Lastly, we have Tromba. Tromba was created by Marco Cedano, a Master Distiller and 40 year veteran of the Tequila Industry. This tequila is more accessible in price than the previous three but nonetheless it is a great option and one you should definitely consider adding to your shelves if you want a more price accessible option for your cocktails.

Tromba is also actually the tequila that we use at my restaurant

These are the three best tequila brands 2022.

Don Julio 1942 Review | Is it worth the $170?

Don Julio 1942 is a premium Tequila loved by Celebrities and tequila connoisseurs alike. It is an Añejo Tequila that retails for anywhere between $150 to $230 depending on where you buy it. It was one of the first ultra premium tequila’s out there and has an amazing reputation. Part of that reputation comes from Don Julio the company, as they were very well known and highly regarded. That paired with the celebrity hype behind this tequila, propelled it to super stardom. Don Julio tequila is one of the most popular and sought after tequila’s on the planet.

In this video, I give you my honest review of Don Julio 1942. While it is an incredibly popular tequila, No Review would be complete without talking about what it tastes like.

Don Julio 1942 Taste

I will not lie, This is one of the smoothest tequilas I have ever tasted in my life. It has those beautiful delicious caramelly, vanilla notes from the barrel it was aged in but it still has that distinct Agave flavor that still comes through. It is easy to drink and you could easily lose yourself in this bottle.

Its easy to see why it is so beloved as it is a perfect tequila, for non-tequila drinkers. It is exactly the opposite of what people typically associate with Tequila. Its not harsh at all, it is easy to drink, taking shots of it goes down super easy, and it looks amazing. If you want to ball out and look like the man at the club, this bottle will draw eyes. It stands out with its beautifully sculpted bottle.

Final Verdict

Truthfully, Don Julio 1942 is delicious. There is no denying it. My Biggest issue with this tequila is its price. For the price you pay, anywhere between $150-$230, I believe there are plenty of other tequilas out there worthy of your money.

One in particular i believe is more worth it is Fortaleza Añejo.
