Usually, no. Many people (not just vegans) get concerned about this. But in fact, its cousin mezcal may well have a worm. You can visit Barnivore and enter the name of your chosen tequila brand, which will tell you whether it’s vegan or not.
Mockingbird Spirit is England’s first agave tequila alternative. Made in Bristol, this is also non-alcoholic. Humbly mimicking the taste of tequila, this uses authentic Mexican blue weber agave (a plant related to cactus). Serve over ice with a club soda and garnish with a wedge of lime. Or use in traditional cocktails. Has tasting notes of sweet vanilla and cinnamon. And no hangover (still age-restricted). In a gorgeous gift box, made with organic ingredients including ashwagandha (avoid for thyroid conditions).
El Rayo Plata Tequila is hand-bottled from 200-year old copper stills, to perfectly capture the flavour of Mexico’s blue agave plant. Clean and crisp with flavours of citrus and spice, the slow-grown blue agave matures in Mexico’s highlands for 8 years. The beautiful bottles are designed by a local artist from Guadalajara to pay homage to the Mexican folklore origins, which tells of El Rayo (lightning) striking the blue agave plant.
