List Rules Vote up and add all of your favorite brands of tequila!

One of the most popular beverages worldwide, tequila is a very distinct tasting liquor that takes care and time to produce. The drink is made from the blue agave plant found near the Mexican city of the same name. Some consider tequila to be one of the truest forms of alcohol due to its highly potent nature. Jimadores, the harvesters of the agave plant, trim piñas from the ground at their peak ripeness to be baked, mashed, and then put in stills to ferment. This becomes tequila, the go-to drink for parties where everyone's looking to get a little wild.

As harvesting practices and fermentation times vary, each tequila producer comes up with a tequila that taste slightly different from another's. This leaves the drinker with many options to consider when trying to choose good tequila. For those of you who have very particular booze preferences, types of tequila matter. Should you go with a tequila blanco, like the varieties produced Milagros, Avion, and El Espolon? Or maybe a more traditional tequila like Patrón, Cazadores, Herrudura, or Hornitos?
