Not All Tequilas Are Created Equal

Tue, Aug 04, 2020

One question that we get asked frequently is "what's the difference between 100% blue agave tequila and mixto tequila?"

Our answer? A lot

Here at Volley, we only use 100% blue agave tequila, which is made from pure agave and nothing else.

Mixto, on the other hand, contains up to 49% non-agave ingredients. These usually consist of sugar cane or other distillable products, but can also include additives such as flavorings and colorings. What makes things worse is that mixto producers are not required to tell you what they use; meaning you’re never going to know, completely, what’s in your bottle.

So, if you’re the sort of person who likes to know what they’re drinking, always choose 100% blue agave.
