Blanco Tequila: Purity in Every Sip

Blanco Tequila: Purity in Every Sip

Do you love the good old frozen margarita or tequila sunrise? You must be a fan of Blanco tequila. But what is Blanco tequila? Is it different from tequila?

Well, tequila comes in different forms with various infusions. At Tequila Travesuras, we do not use flavors and other additives - only pure ingredients and no additives. Our Blanco tequila is fully traditional and authentic with a distinctive taste. We will explain how we prepare our Blanco tequila and how it differs from others.

What is Blanco Tequila?

In simple terms, blanco, also called Plata or Silver is the purest form of tequila, with flavors and characteristics that deliver the true essence of the blue agave plant. It is unaged and bottled after distillation, retaining its strong agave taste.

Our Blanco tequila is loved for its strong agave flavor, which often carries subtle citrus and pepper notes.

Blanco, in Spanish, means white, which refers to this beverage's clear and colorless appearance. So, Blanco tequila is also called silver tequila.

How Do We Make Blanco Tequila?

We make it from harvested agave plants. What follows is a little bit of cooking. We cook the harvested pinãs in hornos (stone or brick-made ovens), inject them with steam, and leave them to cool down naturally, after which we ferment them into alcohol.

We distill the liquid twice to purify the alcohol. Distillation is done - blanco is ready. We bottle the liquid without aging it. Aging creates Reposado and Añejo tequila. Hence, no color, only pure taste.

What is Perfect for Blanco Tequila?

Blanco tequila has notes of citrus, grass, and pepper flavors while not losing its pure agave origination. It tastes sweeter than Reposado and Añejo. So, Tequila Sunrise, Paloma, and the popular Margarita are the perfect cocktails to make with it.

That’s not all! Its vegetal and sweet taste makes neat sipping a delightful experience. Or, you can enjoy it in a shot glass with a lime juice chaser and salt.

What is the Difference Between Añejo, Blanco, and Reposado Tequilas?


The color and flavor help distinguish between Blanco and other tequilas. Blanco is white tequila, whereas the others are golden. The aging process and its duration determine the color of the liquid. Every tequila is Blanco after distillation. It is only after aging that they change the color to golden.


They also taste different. Blanco is slightly harsher and has a strong flavor. So, people typically use lime or lemon juice with it.

The Takeaway

You may already know by now that tequilas are created differently. They taste and smell different. Some are best solo, while others make delicious cocktails.

Blanco tequila is perhaps the most exquisite tequila to exist on earth. It is pure, and its authentic taste cannot be replicated by cheap-quality flavors. If you want to try Blanco’s pure taste, check out Tequila Travesuras.
