Welcome to WB Triple Shot, where we unravel the mysteries of three exceptional spirits at varying price points. Today, our focus is on the beloved #1 selling spirit in Texas – Tequila!


Like Cognac, tequila is typed by how long it’s aged. When it comes to aging, there are five different types of tequila: blanco, reposado, añejo, extra añejo, and cristalino. We’re going to talk about the first three today.

Let’s dive into this month’s selections!

El Jimador Blanco

Priced at around $23, El Jimador Blanco Tequila pays homage to the dedicated farmers who hand-harvest the agave plants. Bottled immediately after distillation, this tequila boasts a fresh and zesty profile. Its crispness and vibrant citrus notes make it a delightful choice for tequila enthusiasts seeking a refreshing experience.

Gran Centenario Reposado

With a price tag of approximately $34, Gran Centenario Reposado not only offers a beautiful presentation but also a taste that exudes sophistication. Rested in new oak casks, this tequila develops a subtle hint of oak while enhancing the natural sweetness of agave. Indulge in the feeling of luxury without breaking the bank with this exceptional choice.

Tres Generaciones Anejo

For those seeking a tequila with depth and complexity, Tres Generaciones Añejo, priced around $50, is a true gem. Aged for 12 months in toasted American oak barrels, it delivers a rich and smoky flavor profile. This smooth and warm tequila showcases a refined character, with a reduced bite compared to a blanco, while still offering a refreshing drinking experience.
