While the blue agave spirit is often consumed in margaritas or with salt and lime, the truly great stuff is worth savoring by the sip.
Since higher end bottles can cost a pretty penny, sample a few different varieties at once, with a tequila flight.
Blanco offers flights in seven varieties and varying prices, which consist of three one-ounce pours of the blanco, reposado and añejo tequilas from each distillery:
Additionally, the Ultra Flight ($48) features Reserva de La Familia, Milagro “Single Barrel” Añejo, and Don Julio “1942”.

The flight isn’t on the menu, but BOCA still offers it. Get a shot of silver, reposado, and añejo together for a shot each. You can also go Mexican-patriotic with the Bandera, which is a shot of lime juice, a shot of tequila, and a shot of sangrita. Mezcals are also available.

For $22, order a tasting flight of silver, reposado, and añejo tequila from your choice of Casamigos, Avión, Casa Nobles, or Patrón distilleries.

The cocktail room is closed for the summer, but contact Three Wells directly to schedule a tour and tasting. Their blue agave spirit can’t be called tequila because it’s not made in the regions for it, but it’s made right here in Tucson with the same ingredients.
