Top 10 best value for money Tequilas

4th February, 2016 by Annie Hayes

As a new wave of agave aficionados express interest in the category, producers seek to win consumers’ hearts and palates through high-end expressions, sleek packaging and celebrity backing.

This is our pick of the top 10 best value for money Tequilas based on the results of The Tequila Masters 2016

Last month, The Spirits Business held its annual Tequila Masters, where an experienced panel of judges uncovered and recognised some of the category’s best expressions available on the global market.

As our most recent blind tasting competition revealed, it can be all too easy for producers to lose the essence of the agave flavour by over-ageing or over-sweetening the spirit as they strive to create something different. Despite this challenge, many expressions shone through, offering excellent value in their respective flights.

Looking across multiple categories, from Premium to Ultra Premium, Blanco to Mixto, with entrants from producers of all scales, the competition saw a number of Tequila brands awarded medals for their superior quality.

While the individual scores of each entrant are not disclosed, these are 10 of the highest ranking Master medalists recognised in the competition, listed in no particular order.

Readers may notice that not all of these bottlings are standard priced, but have been judged to offer excellent quality to consumers within their respective price categories.
