Difference Between White and Gold Tequila

White vs Gold Tequila

Tequila is a drink made from the blue Agave. The drink mainly comes from the city of Tequila (northwest of Guadalajara) and from the highlands of the western Mexican state of Jalisco. During the process of distillation, all tequila is clear. It is only during the aging process that the spirit is colored, which gives it its different names.

Both white and gold tequila are non-aged. Gold tequila gets its colour from caramel. White tequila, which is also called silver tequila or blanco tequila, is not stored in wood during the process of distillation and aging. This gives white tequila a cleaner or colorless appearance.

Unlike gold tequila, white tequila is bottled straight away. This means that white tequila is stored soon after distillation and is aged for only short period. White tequila has a harsher taste which makes it good for margaritas. Gold tequila is aged for a longer period.

Gold tequila has a mellow taste unlike the harsh taste of white tequila,. Gold tequila can be used as a shot, while white tequila is at its best when used in mixed drinks.

White tequila is normally aged for less than two months and kept in neutral oak or stainless steel barrels. Unlike white tequila, gold tequila contains caramel or food coloring.

  1. Hello
    Gold tequila is never pure tequila and we call it mixto. White
    tequila can some times also be mixto. They can be as little as
    51% tequila and the rest cane alcohol.

    How do I know? I live part of the year in the town of Tequila
    and I export tequila. Also I am a Canadian.

    Maybe you need to do a post about the different types of
    tequila like blanco, reposado, anjeo, and extra anjeo.

    This would help dispel the many myths and misconceptions
    about the subject.

    Thanks Peter

  2. Anejo is how it is spelt!!! If you are going to say you know tequila then know the correct spelling and know that the brand varies in age and caragory….

    Silver – can be aged – varies from 0 to 2 months
    Repos ado – generally 6 to 8 months in charred barrels
    Anejo – meaning aged up to 3 years aged
    Extra Anejo – 3 yrs and up aged to change the complex flavour through being 100 % agave… Blue Agave.
