| Cazadores Reposado Tequila 750ml|
The finest Kentucky oak barrels are used to age the tequila. Resting in oak, imparts the natural gold color and contributes to the delightful and refreshing aroma and flavor. no other tequila at any cost, can compare to the smoothness and rich character of Tequila Casadores.
Tequila Casadores is meticulously crafted in a manner that takes times. The fermentation process takes 2-3 times longer than most producers because no sugars or yeast is added. The tequila is then double distilled in pot stills, taking almost 3 times longer than other tequila producers.
Casadores outsells every type of tequila in Mexico, including Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo.

Tequila Casadores is produced with 100% blue agave, hand selected from 10-12 year old mature plants, which are organically grown inthe heart of the Loa Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico. This region, known for its perfect soil and climate, produces the finest blue agave available.
Produced for rock singer Sammy Hagar, Cabo Wabo is an extremely smooth tequila that is perfect in margaritas or straight up with a wedge of lime.
Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:
* oro ("gold") unaged tequila which is "joven y abogado" (young and adulterated) which means that caramel, fructose, glycerin and wood flavoring can be added to resemble aged tequila * aħejo ("aged" or "vintage") û aged minimum 1 year but less than 3 years in oak barrels
* maduro ("mature," "ultra-aged," or "vintage") û aged minimum 3 year in oak barrels This is a new category which was established in March 2006, represented on the bottles as "Extra Aħejo".
The aging process changes the color of tequila, but the liquid can sometimes be colored with caramel to show a darker color, indicative of a longer aging process; aħejos tend to be darker, the reposados slightly less dark, while the platas are not colored at all.[citation needed
It is a common misconception that some tequilas contain a 'worm' in the bottle. Only certain mezcals, usually from the state of Oaxaca, are ever sold con gusano, and that only began as a marketing gimmick in the 1940s. The worm is actually the larval form of the moth Hypopta agavis that lives on the agave plant. Finding one in the plant during processing indicates an infestation and, correspondingly, a lower quality product. (Note: for more information on how tequila is made, see mezcal.) However this misconception continues, and even with all the effort and marking to represent Tequila as a premium -- similar to the way Cognac is viewed in relation to brandy -- there are some opportunist producers for the shooters and fun market who blur these boundaries
