1800 Tequila distillery

1800 Tequila is a top tequila brand known for quality and traditional craft. Its name comes from the year 1800. This was when tequila was first aged in wood. This was a key time in tequila's history.

The Beckmann family makes 1800 Tequila. They also own Jose Cuervo tequila. The tequila is from 100% blue agave. This grows in the volcanic soils of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave plants are key. They are picked only when 8-10 years old.

After picking, the agave hearts are cooked. This turns starches into sugars. The cooked agave is crushed and the juice is fermented. It is then distilled, often in pot stills. This keeps the agave taste in the final spirit.

The Silver, or Blanco, is clear. It is bottled right after distillation or after a short ageing period. It has a clean agave taste with citrus hints. It is smooth and great for cocktails like margaritas. The Reposado is aged in oak barrels for up to six months. "Reposado" means rested. The ageing gives it a golden colour and oak, vanilla, and toffee flavours. It still has the agave taste. The superb Añejo is aged for at least a year. It gets a deeper colour and more complex flavours from the wood. It offers a rich taste with butterscotch, caramel, and spice notes.

There are also wonderful flavoured expressions. These include Coconut Tequila, which mixes 1800 Silver and natural coconut flavour. This creates a tropical spirit. It adds a new taste to traditional cocktails.

The bottle of 1800 Tequila is special. It is trapezoidal with a stopper that doubles as a shot glass. This shows the brand's mix of tradition and new ideas.

1800 Tequila is good neat or on the rocks. It also works well in many cocktails. It can be in a Tequila Sunrise, Paloma, or more complex craft cocktails. It shows its versatility.

Over time, 1800 Tequila has become well-known in the spirits industry. It is known for its quality. It honours traditional tequila making but also likes new trends and tastes. It suits both tequila experts and casual drinkers. Its global presence shows its lasting popularity.
