Best tequila brands according to random internet people

best tequilaI don’t trust internet surveys, but you still might find this list useful. Ranker users voted on the best tequila brands, and the results might just surprise you.

There’s an understandable bias towards attainable spirits. For example, Clase Azul is way down in 12th when it should higher. But because the entry point is at least $80, fewer people have an informed opinion. Even more appalling though is that KAH, one of the world’s best, isn’t even on the list because it’s tough to find. This would probably be better branded as 10 favorite tequilas, but who’s gonna search for that?
