Tequila makes a perfect Father’s Day gift because it offers a unique and sophisticated experience that many dads appreciate.

Here are ten excellent tequilas and one wild card that should put a smile on Dad’s face and let him know how much you appreciate him.

Mi Campo Reposado

Every bottle of Mi Campo tequila is a work of art; the labels are fantastic. But it’s the liquid inside the bottle that really shines. Their reposado is crafted using 100% Blue Webber Agave which are squeezed vs crushed, something few distillers do. The liquid from the piñas of the agave plants is then cooked in stone ovens & distilled 2x in alembic stills, then rested in French Oak wine barrels for three months. The wine barrels are from Napa Balley and previously housed Cabernet Sauvignon and Pino Noir to give the tequila a unique taste. It costs $30.99, and you can purchase it here.

Gracias a Dios Espadin Mezcal

For the agave-loving Fathers out there who want a change of pace from tequila, we give you Gracias a Dios Espadin. They cultivate their agaves after eight long years and never include additives. Smoky and spicy from the start, followed by a fruity flavor and slight astringency, each sip is an adventure, much like parenthood. It costs $49.99, and you can purchase it here.

Casa Noble Añejo

Being a parent requires patience, so Dad would appreciate this beautifully aged tequila. Made from estate-grown Blue Webber agave grown in rich volcanic soil at high altitudes, it spent two years in new French oak barrels.

El Nogocio Blanco

Their Blanco is a pure, terroir-driven lowlands expression that smells and tastes of Cacahuin, the famed distillery where all El Negocio tequilas are made. It costs $90, and you can purchase it here.

Los Magos Sotol Blanco

This is the ideal bottle for an adventurous Dad who loves trying new things. Made from sotol, a plant that grows in the Chihuahuan Desert, many tequila fans call it the next big thing. Los Magos has been working with the plant for a decade, and their Blanco has complex notes of citrus, black pepper, light smoke, and eucalyptus on the nose.

It costs $49, and you can purchase it here.

Celosa Rosé Tequila

Produced in a single-estate distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, Celosa Rosé Tequila is a 100% organic Joven Tequila with subtle berry notes and a smooth finish.

Contraluz 11:11 Mezcal Reposado
