Blanco Tequila, which can also be referred to as Plata or Silver tequila, is an agave spirit bottled directly after the distillation process. Blanco's are typically rested in stainless-steel tanks to allow for proper oxidization, but can also be rested in Oak or Holm Oak barrels for up to 4 Weeks. Blanco is considered to be a form of Tequila in its purest form which is clear in color containing the true flavors of the Agave plant in which it originated from.
Some prefer this purity because it is young, immature, and pure. The aging process creates distance from its original form in which it develops an identity of its own.
