Nedstar's bulk tequila: a taste of Mexico's finest spirit

Tequila, a famous agave spirit with a rich history, is a refined and recognisable product. It is mostly produced in Jalisco, Mexico, from the fermented juice of the Tequilana Weber or Blue Weber agave. Known for its complex flavours of citrus, pepper, and earthiness, Tequila is ideal for cocktails or enjoying on its own.

The two main types of tequila are the pure 100% agave, made only with Blue Weber agave sugar, and Mixto tequila, which consists of 51% agave sugars and 49% of other sugars and flavourings. Within the last type, you can find different categories such as tequila blanco, or silver, which is unaged, tequila gold, usually a blend of aged and unaged, tequila reposado, a little rested, and añejo, which is aged longer.

The ageing process can last between two months and three years and can create or enhance flavours and aromas. The ageing process generally imparts a golden colour.

Tequila's uses

Tequila is the base of delicious beverages, ranging from classic Margaritas to tasty Tequila Sunrises. Outside the bar, tequila can be used in many different ways in the kitchen. It can enhance grilled meats, add warmth to sauces and give sweets a unique flavour. Popular among those aiming to infuse their dishes with a taste of Mexico, tequila's seamless transition from glass to plate makes it a versatile and favoured ingredient.

How to import tequila from Mexico

Tequila is a highly regulated spirit and therefore it requires a certification to be imported and distributed. CRT, the Tequila Regulatory Council, is the organisation responsible for maintaining the high-quality standards and authenticity of the product. This includes regulating production location, ingredients, and processes, with certification exclusively granted only to businesses that stick rigorously to every step.

As your trusted bulk tequila supplier, Nedstar can help you get the CRT certification.

How is tequila made?

Tequila production involves six key stages: harvesting, baking, juicing, fermenting, distilling, and ageing.

1. Harvesting

The process begins by harvesting the blue agave plant using a specialised knife called a coa. This involves cutting away the leaves to reveal the underground piña bulb.

2. Baking (Piña)

The piña bulb, or agave core, is then baked to extract its fermentable sugars. Traditionally done in pits or modern ovens, this step is crucial for the flavour development.

3. Juicing

After baking, the piñas are shredded and crushed to extract the sweet agave juice, known as mosto. This step can be done mechanically or traditionally using a tahona, a large stone wheel.

4. Fermentation (Mosto)

The extracted mosto is combined with yeast and water in fermentation tanks, where it transforms into ethyl alcohol. This step occurs in either large stainless steel tanks or wooden barrels.

5. Distillation

The fermented agave juices undergo distillation, a purification process that concentrates the alcohol. Typically distilled twice, the first round produces ordinario, while the second yields clear silver tequila ready for ageing.

6. Aging

Tequila is aged for a minimum of 14 to 21 days. Silver or blanco tequila ages for the minimum time, while reposado (aged for two months to one year), añejo (aged for one to three years), and extra añejo (aged for over three years) undergo longer maturation in oak barrels.
