What is Oro/Joven Tequila?
Oro/Joven Tequila: Think of “gold” tequila as tequila on training wheels. It is the only class of tequila that is allowed to be less than 100% blue agave. Up to 49% of the sugars can be from other sources – usually cane. Coloring and flavors may also be added. Oro tequilas don’t have the strong agave flavor of 100% agave tequila, which is why they’re often preferred by folks who don’t drink tequila regularly. Any tequila with added non-agave sugars – sometimes called mixtos – cannot say “100% de Agave” on the label.
