    If a bottle claiming to be tequila does not also say 100% (blue) agave, it is still a tequila.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If a bottle claiming to be tequila does not also say 100% (blue) agave, it is not considered a tequila. The statement implies that a bottle labeled as tequila without the mention of 100% (blue) agave is still considered tequila, but this is incorrect. According to tequila regulations, for a spirit to be classified as tequila, it must be made from at least 51% blue agave. Therefore, if a bottle does not specify 100% (blue) agave, it means that it contains a lower percentage of blue agave and does not meet the requirements to be considered tequila.

    The agave's pinas must be cooked in some form (roasted, baked, etc) before their sugars can produce distillate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the pinas of the agave plant, which are the large, bulbous bases, need to be cooked before their sugars can be fermented and distilled. Cooking the pinas helps break down the complex carbohydrates into simple sugars, which can then be converted into alcohol during the fermentation process. This cooking process can be done through various methods such as roasting or baking, and is an essential step in the production of agave distillates like tequila and mezcal.

    A. True

    Highland (Los Altos) agaves are known for their larger size and sweeter aroma and taste compared to Lowland agaves. This indicates that the statement is true.

    The agave is related to a cactus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the agave is not related to a cactus. While both plants are succulents and share some similarities in appearance, they belong to different plant families. Agave belongs to the Asparagaceae family, while cacti belong to the Cactaceae family. Therefore, they are not closely related.

    Reposados and Anejos must be aged in the same sized barrels.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Reposados and Anejos do not have to be aged in the same sized barrels. Reposados are aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two months but less than a year, while Anejos are aged in oak barrels for a minimum of one year. The size of the barrels used for aging can vary depending on the producer's preference and the desired flavor profile. Therefore, it is not necessary for Reposados and Anejos to be aged in the same sized barrels.

    What is the minimum age requirment for a tequila to be considered "extra anejo"?

    • A.

      2 years

    • B.

      3 years

    • C.

      4 years

    • D.

      5 years

    Correct Answer
    B. 3 years
    Explanation
    The minimum age requirement for a tequila to be considered "extra anejo" is 3 years. This means that the tequila must be aged in oak barrels for at least 3 years before it can be classified as an extra anejo tequila. This extended aging process gives the tequila a smoother and more complex flavor profile, making it a premium and highly sought-after category of tequila.
