The appreciation of Tequila has moved on leaps and bounds in the UK over the past 20 years. What was once a cheap shot to be done on a Friday night with your friends to get you in the 'Karaoke Zone' has become something rather more complex. T for Tamworth, T for Tyseley, T for Tanworth in Arden, or T for Tequilla?

There are 6 key steps in tasting, appreciating & enjoying quality Tequila, we take you through these important steps below;
Step 1: For a proper tequila tasting, first and foremost, you’ll need the proper glassware. Tequila snifters look like champagne glasses but with a narrower opening at the top to keep the aroma inside so you get the full experience. You can also use a brandy snifter, if available. The most important part of choosing a tequila-tasting glass is consistency. Be sure that all participants have the same glass for each of the tastes in your flight.
Step 2: Swirl the tequila gently around the glass to take note of the “legs.” The longer it takes them to reach the bottom of the glass, the fuller the body of tequila. This practice is commonly used in wine tastings as well.
Step 3: Swirl the spirit around the glass again and tilt it to the point where the liquid is almost spilling out. While tilted, take note of the tequila’s aroma at the bottom, middle, and top of the snifter’s opening. The heavier notes will settle at the bottom while the lighter ones will rise to the top. At this point, you will be able to smell the flavors listed under the “aroma” section on the product pages.
Step 4: Take a sip and let the tequila coat your mouth so your palate can distinguish it from other flavors you’ve tasted throughout the day. The sip should stay in your mouth for just a second or two to avoid numbing your tongue. Be sure to smell the tequila before you take a sip to ensure you capture the full flavors of the tequila.
Step 5: Even more important than the first taste, take a sip in with a slow breath and pursed lips to get the most prominent raw agave flavor from the tequila.
Step 6: Once you’ve swallowed the tequila, note the flavors and textures that stick with you. This part of the process will leave you with an overall picture or “image” of the tequila you’ve just tasted and should be enjoyed slowly.
