How is Pure Tequila Different from Regular Tequila?

Tequila is a beloved spirit known for its vibrant flavor and versatility in cocktails. However, not all tequila is created equal. There are distinct differences between pure tequila, also known as 100% agave tequila, and regular tequila, which is often a blend of agave and other sugars. Understanding these differences can enhance your appreciation for high-quality tequila and help you make better choices when selecting tequila canned drinks like LOLO Drink Company’s Tequila Lime Fizz and Honey Paloma Fizz.

1. Source of Ingredients

Pure tequila, also known as 100% agave tequila, is made exclusively from the blue agave plant grown in Jalisco, Mexico. This ensures a high-quality spirit with a distinct, authentic flavor. Regular tequila, on the other hand, can contain up to 49% other sugars, such as cane sugar, in addition to agave. This blend results in a less pure and often less flavorful product.

LOLO Drink Company’s tequila canned drinks, such as the Tequila Lime Fizz and Honey Paloma Fizz, use only pure, 100% agave tequila. This commitment to quality ensures that you’re getting a premium, authentic tequila experience in every can.

2. Production Process

The production process of pure tequila involves traditional methods that preserve the integrity and flavor of the agave plant. The agave hearts are slow-cooked in ovens, crushed to extract the juice, and then fermented and distilled. This careful process results in a smoother, richer tequila. In contrast, regular tequila may use more industrialized methods, including the addition of other sugars during fermentation, which can affect the final taste and quality.

By choosing LOLO’s tequila canned drinks, you’re opting for beverages crafted with pure tequila that undergoes meticulous production, ensuring a superior drinking experience.

3. Flavor Profile

Pure tequila boasts a more complex and nuanced flavor profile. The natural sweetness of the agave shines through, complemented by earthy, vegetal, and sometimes floral notes. Regular tequila, diluted with other sugars, often has a simpler, less refined taste. The rich flavor of pure tequila enhances the overall drinking experience, making it the preferred choice for discerning tequila enthusiasts.

LOLO’s tequila soda cans, including the Tequila Lime Fizz and Honey Paloma Fizz, capture these exquisite flavors. The use of freshly squeezed lime juice and natural agave in these drinks amplifies the authentic taste of pure tequila, providing a refreshing and flavorful beverage.

4. Health Benefits

Pure tequila offers several health benefits that regular tequila does not. Being made entirely from agave, it contains natural sugars called agavins, which have a lower glycemic index compared to other sugars. Agavins are also non-digestible, meaning they act as dietary fiber and can help in weight management. Additionally, pure tequila is gluten-free and contains fewer impurities, making it a better option for those with dietary restrictions or sensitivities.

LOLO’s tequila canned drinks leverage these health benefits by using pure, 100% agave tequila and incorporating natural ingredients. Each can contains only 110 calories and is free from gluten, making it a healthier choice for a refreshing drink.

5. Electrolyte Infusion

A unique feature of LOLO’s tequila canned drinks is the infusion of mineral-rich electrolytes with sea salt, a first-of-its-kind in Canada. Electrolytes help maintain hydration and balance the body’s fluids, which is especially beneficial when consuming alcohol. This innovative addition ensures that LOLO’s drinks are not only delicious but also support your overall well-being.
