Clear color. Cheesy, earthy, umami, grassy, green aromas of black pepper, pepper jack cheese, sweet potato, rose petal, and orange and lemon zest with a fat body and a very long savory animale, blueberry bubblegum, strawberry, and watermelon finish. A fun, bright, and fruity blanco great for fun times and complex cocktails.

Silver or Blanco/White Tequilas are clear, with little (no more than 60 days in stainless steel tanks) or no aging. They can be either 100% agave or mixto. Silver Tequilas are used primarily for mixing and blend particularly well into fruit-based drinks.
