FIVE OF THE BEST: REPOSADO TEQUILAS
Tequila has different age classifications – blanco, reposado, añejo and extra añejo – depending on how much time the spirit spends in barrel. Blancos spend no time in oak, while añejos spend at least one year, and extra añejos a minimum of three years. Reposado translates as ‘rested’, and is defined as being aged in oak for at least two months but less than a year. This means reposados are versatile tequilas that you can either use in cocktails or sip neat.
