Ria Azul Tequila Silver
The Blanco is bottled directly following distillation and represents the most traditional form of tequila. Because it is not aged or enhanced by barreling, the Blanco 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.

Ria Azul Tequila Reposado
Aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels, the Riazul Reposado honors the refinement of a traditional Reposado, while delivering an independent streak in its subtle complexity. Opening with unique welcoming aromas, the Riazul Reposado is anchored by a slight oak base that blossoms to reveal hints of citrus fruit notes that linger on the palate.

Ria Azul Tequila Anejo
After two distillations, the Añejo is aged for two years; longer than any tequila in its class. Riazul selected French oak barrels, made from wood in the Citeaux forests of Burgundy and featuring a medium toast. The Añejo displays subtle hint of agave, driven by delicate flavors of honey, vanilla, dried fruits, and spices.
