100 % de Agave

by Johnny Briefcase @, Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 22:18 (130 days ago)

I bought a bottle of Cabrito Tequila today and later noticed that nowhere on the bottle did it say "100 % de agave". I thought all Cabrito tequila was 100 %. My question is, if all Cabrito is 100 %; then why was it not marked on the bottle ?
Not one of life's great questions; but I am curious. ....JB

I used to buy it when it was 100% but in my opinion they are using something to cut it with and once they cut it with something then they can't use that 100% Agave designation.

Bingo. If it doesn't say 100%, it's a mixto.

Dressed up like a bottle of Cazadores usually works.
This must be a knew change. The Cabrito Repasado label says 100% Agave. We keep Cabrito for our friends that don’t care about the quality of the Tequila. We also use it for Palomas.

The 100% de agave is important to me because it is an easier sugar for your system to process. The Cabrito website says they don't make any tequila that is not 100 % ; but the bottle I purchased is definitely not labeled as such. Maybe they have stared cutting corners and are mixing it with cane sugar or some such. .....JB

Maybe someone is filling and labeling bottles. Check some other labels. Happened to me with El Jimador in Tepic years ago.
