Shredz Recommends

I get many questions about which tequila to buy and at varying price points. So as a Tequila Consultant I have compiled a listing of tequila and mezcal recommendations that I personally have tried and believe are both delicious and hold true to the discerning  Gato Agavero spirit.

All tequila and mezcal images, descriptions and logos are the property of their respective brands.  For the most current information and a deeper understanding of each, links go directly to each brand site.  Pricing shown is an average of multiple sources and should be used as a reference as pricing may vary. This is not a direct-to-buy webpage but rather a fun look at what could very likely be on the bar shelves at the Gato.
