• Sauza® Silver, a premium, 51% agave, Silver tequila
• All Sauza tequilas are double-distilled at low proof to retain the full agave flavor, except the Tres Generaciones range which is triple-distilled for the ultimate in smoothness
• Sauza tequila’s 100% agave products are double-distilled in copper pot stills; mixto products are distilled in stainless steel stills and made by blending the agave with pure cane sugar—not molasses or corn syrup
According to legend, when the Spanish conquistadors ran out of the brandy they brought from Europe, they began to distill a local agave drink, which became North America’s first indigenous distilled spirit. In 1873, this golden beverage was dubbed “tequila” by Don Cenobio Sauza, who founded La Perseverancia Distillery in Tequila, Mexico. He became the first to export tequila to the rest of the world, and today, Sauza® offers a full line (standard, premium and super-premium) of tequila.
