The Manual’s Top 10 Tequilas.


10 Best Top-Shelf Tequilas Between $50-$100 to Round Out Your Liquor Cabinet

While tequila is often labeled as the go-to shot-caller party liquor, that isn’t always the case, as there is so much more to this complex agave-based spirit.

Too many people are marred by cheap tequila-fueled binge; these budget buys are often mixtos, tequilas that contain at least 51-percent blue agave but the rest made up of other sugars (that being said, our list contains no mixtos). Real, 100-percent Blue Weber agave tequilas, however, are one of the easiest drinking spirits and can have some of the most creative flavors.

Whether you’re looking for something to make a margarita, whip up another cocktail, or enjoy as a sipper, these are some of the best top-shelf tequilas over $50 (but less than $100).

Looking for something cheaper? Here are the best tequilas under $20. For a more thorough introduction to the spirit, listen to the founder of Casa Noble on The Manual podcast.
