Great Tequilas To Pickup While in Mexico

People often ask us which tequilas they should pickup in Mexico that they can’t get here in the states. Of course, there are scores of tequilas that never make it across the border but we have a few Mexico-only favorites that we often recommend. And the good news is that at least two of our three favorites are due to come out in the states very soon.

We recently discovered a gem of a tequila called El Tequileño, which is reposado aged for close to one year (11 months and 2 weeks to be exact), giving it a rich, full-bodied flavor. It is extremely affordable considering it is of añejo quality. Given that it’s priced around $25, we crammed our luggage with several bottles the last time we went to Mexico.

Our next pick is Siete Leguas D’Antaño extra añejo. Many consider the Siete Leguas line as the cream of the crop of traditional Mexican tequilas. If you appreciate the clean agave kick of their blanco, you’ve got to taste how the line progresses all the way to the extra añejo.

Both El Tequileno and the D’Antaño are due out in the states soon. We will let you know as soon as they hit the shelves.

Finally, our last pick is Maestro Tequilero tequila añejo classico, a smooth and rich tequila that carries all the oaky flavors that you expect from an aged spirit.

So far, we’ve only seen this in duty free, although we suspect you might be able to get it in other retail outlets in Mexico. But even if you can’t, duty free is a quick and easy way to get your hands on it. (That’s where we got the bottle we’re showing in the video.)

So, if you’re going to Mexico or have a friend who’s going, you may want to send them this list. Otherwise, wait a little while and they just may come to you.

  1. Thoughtful and interesting, thank you. I was brought up in Mexico but moved to England at such a young age I barely remember anything apart from the tasty food and kind people. I finally found some authentic mexican food if you want to have a look, I thought I’d share it with you!


  2. Maestro Añejo classico has been our favorite for the past 2 years. Our tequila loving masseuse in Tulum introduced it to us. Have found it at the Covi store in Tulum but always pick it up at the Duty Free. Great website!!


  3. I was able to purchase the Maestro Tequilero Anejo in a liquor store in Mexicali. Thanks for all the great reviews.
