Tequilas & Mezcals
At Big Sur we serve only 100% Agave Tequila.
Unlike Mixtos, these tequilas are all made from the Blue Agave plant with the same love, dedication, and heritage as a fine Cognac or Whiskey.
Enjoy this selection of our favorites as they do in the Baja, along side our housemade
‘Verdita’; cucumber, pineapple, cilantro, jalapeno, or shaken up in a Margarita.
Tequila: the basics
Spanish for white, blancos are un-aged tequilas, usually fresh from the still or in barrels for less than two months. Blancos are known for full agave flavors, with lots of spice and character
Spanish for “rested,” Reposados are aged for less than one year, taking on some sweetness from the oak, but retaining most of the agave flavours. Reposados vary wildly in style and character, but are usually smoother than Blancos without sacrificing much spice or style.
Spanish for”aged,” Añejos spend at least a year in oak barrels. These Tequilas absorb rich, sweet flavors from the oak and are created to be sipped like a Whisky or Brandy.
Look for subdued spice with strong vanilla, and add ice at your own discretion.

Mezcal is essentially made from other Agave species in and near Oaxaca (instead of Tequila) in the far South of Mexico. Cooked underground with smoke a key ingredient in production, mezcals tend to be bolder, smokier, and more intense than tequilas
