Did You Know? - Most gold tequilas get their color from the caramel coloring added to the tequila before fermentation. Gold tequilas are not typically aged, and usually contain only about 51% agave tequila. Sometimes 100% agave gold tequila is made by combining silver tequila and an aged tequila, such as reposado or añejo. Since quality aged tequila has a gold hue, the addition of the coloring was a marketing tactic to improve one’s perspective of cheaper brands. Gema Tequila gets its true gold coloring from the oak barrels it is aged in.
