Silver, blanco or white tequila is the clear, transparent alcohol easily found in most bars or liquor stores. It is characterized by it's completely clear look, similar to vodka.
This variety of tequila is bottled directly after being distilled, meaning that it is rarely aged or aged for a very short time. Typically distilled in stainless steel containers, silver tequila can be either 100 percent agave or a mix.
Silver tequila can have a harsh taste to some people because it isn't aged like the highest end tequilas that are made to be sipped straight.
