Carlos Camarena comes from a venerable family of the tequila trade that has been in the business since the 1800s. He distills many top-shelf tequilas, but Tapatio Añejo, a 75-year-old Mexican brand only recently available in the United States, is our favorite. In crafting Tapatio, Camarena allows the piñas, or sugar-rich hearts, to ferment slowly along with the bagazo, or residual pulp, and then lets the finished blanco sit in steel tanks for six months. The result is a distinctive tequila that is full-bodied and spicy. The company's recently introduced Tapatio Blanco 110 (110 proof) is also surprisingly sippable, with a big floral aroma and herbal flavors. [$34; charbay.com]
