Pineapple in Tequila must be the opposite of pineapple on pizza.

Master Distiller Arturo Fuentes Cortes has been producing proper Tequila for a while, diligently working on the perfect recipe. Growing up in the shadow of the Tequila volcano in the town of Tequila, it was only natural. Once he had captured the true essence of Mexico in Spirit form, all he needed was a brand. Enter Rooster Rojo, the red rooster, a symbol of Mexico. Locally crafted from the finest agave juice, Arturo's Tequila is lovingly made at the Fabrica de Tequilas Finos distillery that operates from an old colonial building.

Their Añejo Tequila is made from 100% blue Weber agave from the Los Altos region and it is to die for and it's aged for more than a year in 200-liter American oak ex-Bourbon casks. To shake things up, the Rooster Rojo team decided they'd infuse their Añejo with the best Roasted Red Spanish pineapples before putting it to rest in the ex-Bourbon barrels. That's how you still get all of the classic Rooster Rojo Añejo flavors only now they're backed up with waves of refreshing juicy pineapple, hints of banana, and a wonderfully spicy finish. It’s nothing like pineapple on pizza (except if you’re into that, then it totally is).

In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
Tequila goes bad with time. Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidization and evaporation diminish the Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged tequila.
