Our Favorite Tequilas (and why).


Almost nine years ago, Liberty started first as a classic cocktail bar.  We had maybe 80 bottles of mostly brown spirits, a good smattering of gin, some vodkas and a few tequilas.  No mezcal.

To make a long story short, we have been through quite an evolution in our bars milieu.  Now, after climbing to the heights of having at one time 60+ tequilas, we have dramatically cut down on our selection due to our intention to pour only traditionally-made agave spirits.  That means no difusers used in the creation of the tequila, and for the most part, no autoclaves either.  Just horno-roasted agave.

In short – while this is surely not our complete list of ‘favorite’ tequilas, we grabbed a quick sample of what we look forward to suggesting to our pals & customers.

In no specific order:

Tequila AreNOM – A serious of tequilas, each from different traditional distilleries.
Tapatio – Reportely distilled at La Alteña distillery (which also makes the Ocho and El Tesoro brands), the stand out is the 110 blanco°.
El Tesoro – Also made at the La Alteña distillery by Carlos Camarena Curiel, who is now the third generation of Master Distiller for the distillery.
Espolòn – Distilled in the highlands by San Nicholas distillery by Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza.
