The Plata is bottled directly following distillation and represents the most traditional form of tequila. Because it is not aged or enhanced by barreling, the Plata is the choice of tequila purists who seek the unmasked agave character and the influences of the land of origin.
The long maturing agave achieves the highest quality fructose and reveals the unique aromas and flavors indigenous to the Jalisco highlands.
Best served chilled or on the rocks, never frozen or on it's own, and no salt or lime needed.
Best for mixing.
Found everywhere from small family owned taquerias to fine dining.
Great in margaritas, Palomas, etc.
Wine EnthusiastDistinctly sweet scent, vanilla forward, marshmallow, cocoa. Same on palate, finishing with white pepper and ginger tingle, faint hint of grapefruit peel and jalapeño. It's a little too sugary-sweet, but the barrel-aged versions amp up warmer tones.
