The Most Powerful Tequila App Ever Created for Android: Tequila Matchmaker



fortaleza-reposadoLooking for holiday gift-buying advice for the tequila lover in your life? You’ve come to the right page.

The Tequila Matchmaker app currently shows 3,340 different tequilas coming from 1,712 brands. Users of the app can add items to a Wish List as a way of keeping track of the tequilas they would like to try. We created this list of The 200 Most Wanted Tequilas by combining every member’s wish list in the app.

At first we assumed that this list would be dominated by the most expensive of all tequilas, extra añejos. But app users seem to be a lot less aspirational, and much more practical when it comes to the use of their wish lists. Although there wasn’t a dramatic difference between the categories, añejo tequilas appeared most often, comprising of 28% of wish list items. Closely behind was reposados (25%), and blancos (24%). Surprisingly, extra añejos make up only 20% of the total wish list items.

The chart below shows the top 21 tequilas that appear most often on member wish lists as of September 2015. Further down is the complete list, which includes tequilas that appear on at least 10 wish lists, which can be sorted according to popularity, price, and type.

Fortaleza Reposado is the most wanted tequila, appearing on 216 wish lists. Fortaleza is a small-batch brand that crushes their agaves using a 2-ton tahona (stone wheel), and this brand’s products appear throughout the list. It has developed a cult-like following among bartenders and aficionados. There’s nothing modern about their production process, and that’s a big reason why it is so coveted by hardcore tequila fans.

All varieties of Los Abuelos tequila (blanco, reposado, and añejo) made the top 21 list. This was Fortaleza’s original name, so if you see any bottles they are from the early days of Fortaleza, and could be up to 10 years old.

Appearing in the #2 slot is Don Julio 1942, which, by the way, also tops our “100 Most Liked Tequilas” list.

Also noteworthy is how often products from Casa Noble appear on the list (12 times!), many of which are version of products that are no longer in production. This rarity puts them in the category of “treasure bottle,” so if you spot any of these, snap them up!

Casamigos Blanco and Reposado also made the Top 21 list. This is the trendy “George Clooney tequila” that is now widely distributed.

What would you add to your tequila wish list? (Hint: Install the app and start creating your own, if you haven’t already!)
