Almond Tequila Brands
While some bottlings have been discontinued over the years, there are still a few making almond tequila—most offer a product that’s closer to a liqueur than straight tequila, meaning they have added sweetener. Those brands include Pochteca, El Ultimo, Mar Azul and Reserva del Señor, which offers two different options. Reserva del Señor’s standard Almendrado is made with a blanco tequila, while the brand’s Premium Almendrado is made with a seven-month aged reposado tequila. Both are infused with almond flavoring during the second distillation. Since all of these brands’ bottlings are liqueurs, the ABV for each hovers around 25-30 percent.
