Spirit of the Agave
The market for tequila is more interesting and diverse than ever — and in honor of Cinco de Mayo — it's a great time to stock up your home bar with a bottle or two. Prices of agave spirits have shot up in the past few years as the bold Mexican liquor has gained recognition for its unique flavor and complexity, and top-tier bottles of tequila can cost easily hundreds of dollars. Frugal shoppers can find a wide range of delicious 100% agave tequila for less than $30, though. We reviewed recent and past results of the respected Ultimate Beverage Challenge and cross-checked with consumer reviews on several sites to find the inexpensive best of the best in three categories: blanco, reposado, and añejo.
