Where other spirit categories saw brand variance on the top of the podium, El Tesoro mopped up — its blanco, añejo and extra añejo all seizing the only golds doled out in each respective sub-group.
El Tesoro is owned by arbiters of what feels like 50 percent of the spirits industry, Beam Suntory, but crafted by Carlos Camarena, a tequila making savant from and working out of the Mexican highlands. Camarena is responsible for various award-winning tequilas: Tequila Ocho, Tapatio and now El Tesoro.
Each of the three award-nabbing bottles is available nationwide and priced around $55.
