This is the best tequila in the world and it's from Jalisco

No more arguing about which is the best tequila in the world. The most recent edition of the World Tequila Awards 2020 has already given its answer: the event that takes place every year selects the best of this internationally recognized beverage category in four categories: White, Reposado, Añejo, and Extra Añejo.

There, Cierto Tequila won the Best Tequila in the World and also won the category of Best Extra Añejo. The judges described it as follows: "Hints of cognac are mixed with agave in the nose. A great balance of wood and spirit on the tongue while maintaining a soft and smooth texture. Classy and sober, with a soft and gentle finish".

This was not the only good news for the brand, as it was also named "Distiller of the Year" at the 2020 San Diego International Wine & Spirit Challenge, where it also won a total of nine medals.
