An old and sad subject is the problem of Americans getting distilleries in Mexico to fill brands that are owned by them. Some of these distilleries fill forty and fifty brands. The real problem is the outrageous claims made by these brand owners. "Certified Organic by the FDA" is one of these. The FDA does not certify what they can't watch grow. They inspect over and over again. However, they do not go to Mexico to inspect. Especially a crop that takes up to 12 years to mature. This particular distillery makes 10 different brands, nine of which do not claim to be organic. The agave for these brands are not kept isolated, nor are the distillation runs. It really gets infuriating.
Best Tequila - 2010
3 Amigos Tequila
Without a doubt, one of the finest and smoothest tequilas you can treat your palate to is 3 Amigos Tequila. This premium, 100 percent agave tequila is handcrafted at a family-owned distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. The blue agave plants are harvested by jimadores with a talent for selecting only the healthiest and most perfectly ripened agaves.3 Amigos is an affordable alternative to the high-priced tequilas and rivals their flavor. It comes in several varieties, including Organic Blanco, a USDA-certified organic tequila. They also have 3 Amigos Blanco, which is double-distilled and bottled, 3 Amigos Reposado, double-distilled and aged for 11 months in charred white oak barrels; and 3 Amigos Anejo, aged in oak barrels for two years, giving it a distinct and balanced flavor of agave, oak, vanilla, and a light caramel body.
