Take a sip of this tequila, and you will see that the difference is very clear!
Anejo Tequila is considered ”old" tequila and the best tequila anejos are aged between 18 months and 3 years while the best 100% agave tequilas are aged for up to 4 years. The barrels used during this aging process cannot be more than 600 liters, and most barrels are in the 200-liter range.
