Olmeca Tequila Gold is categorized as a Joven. Type is determined by age, and this spirit is aged for 6 months. Generally, Joven ("young") or Oro ("gold") tequilas are a mixture of blanco and reposado and are usually mixed with additives before bottling. These are usually the cheaper spirits used for mixed drinks.
This tequila was double distilled in a copper pot still. Normally repeated distillation produces a smoother, more pure spirit.
Much of the flavors and characteristics of a whiskey are drawn up from the wood that the spirit is matured in. Oak is the wood used most often in the maturing of spirits due to its durability and high level of natural occurring oils. These oils, called vanillins, are the main component in imparting flavor on the spirit aged within the barrel.
