a tequila shop in the shopping arcade going to Rosarito Beach Hotel. You can choose from an endless array of tequilas and they don't sell the generic Jose Cuervo Tequila here! when you say tequila in mexico, they ask you what kind (like ordering a dimsum in china, they ask you what kind?) of tequila. There are two basic categories of tequila: mixtos and 100% agave. Mixtos use up to 49% of other sugars in the fermentation process, with agave taking up the remainder. Mixtos use both glucose and fructose sugars.
With 100% agave tequila, blanco or plata is harsher with the bold flavors of the distilled agave up front, while reposado and añejo are smoother, subtler, and more complex. As with other spirits that are aged in casks, tequila takes on the flavors of the wood, while the harshness of the alcohol mellows. The major flavor distinction with 100% agave tequila is the base ingredient, which is more vegetal than grain spirits (and often more complex).
What to buy: This Casa De La Tequila Shop is specializing in 100% Blue Agave Fine Tequilas and the cheapest ones are 300 mexican pesos for a 750 ml bottle (hey this is not the cheap Jose Cuervo Kind ok but the premium kind and more expensive than patron) and depending on the brand goes up to 700 mexican pesos for a 1 liter bottle.
What to pay: depends on the quality of the tequila you want.
