Additive Free TequilaIn 2020 we launched our Tequila Matchmaker Additive-Free program for brands and distilleries that want to be super transparent about their production processes and their non-use of additives. It is an opt-in program, which needs to be renewed each year.

Inspections are done on-site and can last from a few hours to a few days, depending on how many brands and products we are reviewing at the distillery. In addition to auditing the production, we ask a lot of questions and perform a sensorial analysis throughout various stages of the tequila-making process.

You can read more about our methods and program goals, here.

This list will be updated each time a brand is added (or removed) from the program. You can use the form (below) to subscribe to email alerts any time this list changes.
