Best Decanters for Tequila

Premium and high-quality tequilas continue to become more appreciated by spirits enthusiasts. Superb tequilas are being used to make meticulously crafted tequila cocktails in cocktail bars. There are a couple of important points to learn about tequila in order to better understand tequila. Firstly, this Mexican spirit must be made from blue agave and come from the region of Jalisco to be called tequila. Next, there are four different classifications of tequila that can seem confusing at first but are actually quite simple to understand. These classifications refer to how much time the spirit has spent aging in barrels. From the least aged to the most aged this is blanco, reposado, añjeo, and extra añjeo which typically go from clear in color to dark brown in color. From ultra-smooth sipping tequilas to more citrusy highland agave tequilas there is something for everyone to enjoy.


Why Use a Decanter

Serving tequila from a decanter is mainly aesthetic. While serving tequila from a decanter doesn’t provide many benefits in the way of breathing or opening up the spirit, it can help enhance the experience. Decanters make for a great focal piece for get-togethers or parties and are sure to impress guests. Set up a decanter of tequila next to sliced limes, ice, and simple syrup to serve guests classic margaritas and get the evening started.


Preserving Spirits

Properly preserving spirits in the number one priority when shopping for a decanter. When planning to store spirits in the decanter remember to take into account the quality of the stopper. There should be an airtight seal in order to avoid evaporation. It is important to avoid storing spirits in crystal decanters due to the high lead content in crystal and opt for decanters made from glass or other materials.
