PaQuí Tequila FAQs
PaQuí is a luxury artisanal tequila that only uses perfectly ripened (26 brix level) agaves, handpicked from the highlands of Jalisco, which are then selectively distilled using a proprietary method to create a uniquely smooth and flavorful tequila that is enjoyable to taste. Our Master Distiller invented a new process to achieve an inviting aroma, layers of flavor, and a soft finish – so unlike the other tequilas on the market.
Typical tequilas often have a throat burning-sensation and a harsh, biting finish but PaQuí’s delicious flavor profile and soft finish allows drinkers to experience the wide range of pleasant aromas of the blue agave fruit that are usually masked by the bitter tastes.

There are three major classifications of 100% agave tequila: Blanco (our Silvera), Reposado, and Añejo. The flavors of each of these tequila types are largely affected by how they are distilled and how long they are aged in oak barrels.
Blanco, or Silver, is tequila in its purest form. They are clear in color and are usually bottled directly following the last distillation. There is no oak aging and the flavor you drink comes from the agave, though the fermentation and distillation techniques have profound effects on the taste profile. PaQui Silvera was made to be enjoyed neat and slowly sipped. From the enticing floral and grassy aromas, to the first note of sweet agave fruit on the tongue, followed by vanilla, pepper and mineral notes.
Reposado sees a little bit of aging in oak barrels, generally from a few months to a year which gives it a beautiful subtle golden color. This slight aging process helps to temper the strong agave flavor without masking it. With PaQuí’s Reposado, on top of the agave flavor, you will notice a subtle balance of fruits, florals, and spices. Light hints of vanilla, jasmine and citrus help to round and smooth the flavor.
Añejo Tequila is aged in oak barrels the longest, generally from one to three years, it is known for its deep golden hue. Añejo showcases not only the flavor of agave, but takes the flavor profile to a whole new level. Our Añejo is silky and rich with vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and custard flavors. It also adds little floral notes and lingering oak that create a mellow and soothing tequila meant to be sipped neat from a properly shaped tequila glass.
Not necessarily! Although the distinct amber color of a premium Añejo tequil might have you believing that it equates to higher-quality, the truth is that it all comes down to your taste and preference. In fact, many tequila aficionados believe that silver or blanco tequila is the purest expression of the agave flavors and prefer this type, while others believe the wood-barrel aged golden liquid is more enjoyable for its sweeter, more complex notes. But unlike wine or bourbon, just because tequila has been aged for 15 years in a barrel does not make it better.
In fact, at PaQuí, we choose to age our Reposados and Anejos a shorter time so that the oak complements the aromatic sweet flavors of the agave fruit and does not overpower it, giving it a complex, well balanced and rounded finish that is most enjoyable to sip.
Though taking tequila as a shot or mixing it into sugary cocktail mixers is how most drinkers are used to drinking tequila (in an effort to avoid tasting the harsh, biting effects of the most common tequilas popular in the U.S. market), actual great tasting premium tequila is meant to be smooth and delicious enough to be sipped as one would with a fine wine or premium whisky.
To get the most out of PaQuí, it is surprisingly important to have proper glassware if you want to enhance your tequila tasting experience. A tequila snifter looks somewhat similar to a champagne glass but is shorter and smaller and the top section is narrower to keep the aromas inside.
Riedel makes beautiful tequila glasses that are exquisitely designed for sipping, though there are other options, too. Once using the proper glassware, the flavor and aromas that you can smell and taste are at a whole different level.
Though mezcal and tequila both come from the agave plant and both hail from ancestral Mexico, they are not the same. While tequila is a type of mezcal, mezcal is not always tequila – and that’s just one of many differences between these complex and hugely popular agave spirits. From their distillation processes to the types of agaves that can be used to the distinct flavors of each spirit, there is much to discover.
