Best New Tequilas

Tacos and tequila are a classic match, from the young blancos in margaritas to the smoky, aged reposados and añejos sipped straight. Here, four new choices.

Antiguo de Herradura Añejo ($30): Created by Herradura in 1924, this herbal, spicy tequila just became available in the U.S.

  • El Grado Blanco ($45): A crisp, fresh, hand-bottled tequila made by master tequilera Ana María Romero.

  • Charbay Blanco ($58): Napa Valley's Charbay Distillery is renowned for its artisanal vodkas; this clean, agave-peppery blanco, produced in Mexico, is its first tequila.

  • Maestro Dobel ($75): An exceptional, remarkably silky blend of reposado (aged in oak for up to 12 months) and añejo (aged 24 months).
