"Now tequila may be the favoured beverage of outlaws but that doesn't mean it gives them preferential treatment. In fact, tequila probably has betrayed as many outlaws as has the central nervous system and dissatisfied wives. Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard god who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate!"
~ Tom Robbins
Unaged, Unadulterated, Underrated
Ever wonder what the agave plant really tastes like? Sipping a balanced blanco tequila is the easy way to find out. Rich in vegetal overtones, the blanco is the tequila style the connoisseur returns to after the affair with añejos has ended.
Rested, Refined, Rebellious
The similarities between reposados are that they are slightly aged and that they share very little in common. Some are peppery, some are astringent, some are chalky, some are smoky; all are very distinct and special in their own way.
Old, Oaky, Outrageous
Whether the tequila is aged in used bourbon barrels, French or American oak, the result is fantastic. Sometimes, in taste, a cousin to bourbon, other times an acquaintance of scotch. The tequila of choice for ballers, movie stars and athletes.
Wild, Wicked, Wonderful
Imagine if tequila had a badass older brother who smoked (and rode a Harley), and went about things in a completely different way, this would be Mezcal, same family but slightly different genes. Sotol is in a category all to itself, a different plant (the dessert spoon) is used to make this ancient moonshine that the people of Chihuahua are proud to consider their state drink.

In a perfect world no one would use fake sour mix in margaritas. At Tahona we believe that adding sugary, fake tasting, “juice” to tequila should be punishable by jail time. In order to accommodate all taste buds we offer our House Marg, a bit on the sweet side, and our Coin Style Marg, a bit on the tart side, and invite you to pick your poison!
