What Kinds Of Items Can Your Tequila Gift Basket Include?

A Curated Tequila Gift Box 

Tequila is a distilled spirit from Mexico, made from the agave plant. It’s a rich drink with a complex profile. 

Your giftee may appreciate the level of detail we go into when curating your tequila gift basket. That’s because each tequila gift set includes background information including:

  • Raw materials
  • Production methods
  • History 
  • Geography 

Mexican laws stipulate that tequila can only come from Jalisco in Mexico. Apart from that, if you really want to know more about tequila, here are some of the major types of tequila: 

Blanco tequila: This is probably the most common tequila you can find. It’s not aged for more than 60 days, and is affordable.

Joven tequila: You would hardly find this type as it’s not aged at all, and the quality varies widely. 

Reposado tequila: This is aged in wood casks for about three to nine months. 

Anejo tequila: Now, you start to get to the finer tequilas. Anejo is aged for anywhere between 18 months to 3 years. 

Extra-anejo tequila: This is aged for more than three years in barrels. It can rival the most complex whiskeys in their flavor profiles. 

At 180 Drinks, we choose high-quality tequila to match your requirements for your connoisseur. We always suggest you compliment your tequila gift with some additional accoutrements such as garnishes or even tequila glassware.

Fresh Fruits And Vegetables 

Make your tequila gift basket even yummier with some of our fresh fruits and vegetables. Why, you may ask? 

We source only from local farms, organically harvested, and in season. This ensures that your giftee receives a complete gift that bursts with flavors and aromas. 

Fresh Herbs And Spices

Herbs play well with many tequila and mezcal cocktails. When you add herbs or spices to a drink, they bring out deeper flavors from within. 

We use only the freshest herbs and spices, as always. Any cocktail gets a fresh kick with some herbs or spices. These are some of the best tequila-based cocktails with herbs:

  • Mint Caipiroska
  • Cilantro Negroni
  • Basil French 75

Apart from basil and mint, herbs like thyme, lavender, and dill are great with tequila too.

A Citrus Bouquet To The Tequila Gift Hamper

Tequila cocktails are diverse. There’s just no end to the experimentation with a fine bottle of tequila. Some of the best tequila cocktails include:

  • Chimayo
  • Sangrita
  • Tequila sunrise
  • Margarita
  • Paloma

Adding citrus fruits to your tequila gift means that you are also gifting a readymade cocktail of sorts to your giftee! 

Our customers love gifting a hamper with the perfect items to make some great tequila cocktails right at home.

Sweeteners Make A Difference

Sweeteners play a crucial role in many cocktails. They, literally, sweeten the harshness of the spirit, making a drink more palatable. 

We have many varieties of natural sweeteners to enhance the flavor of the tequila drink. 

Bitters For Brilliant Tequila

You can make a simple tequila Old Fashioned right at home if you have the right bitters. Made with simple syrup, tequila, lime juice, and Angostura bitters, this is a classic cocktail that is easy to make. 

Bitters make drinks better and are often essential to a good cocktail. The purpose is to add an element of surprise and unlock all the secrets hidden in your drink. Take our word for it. The concentrated aromatics just happen to be delicious in cocktails.

Tequila Gift Basket Garnishes

Drinks and outfits are a bit similar if you ask us. You got to dress to impress. A fantastic tequila cocktail is great with limes, lemons, and other citrus fruits. But garnishes can make the drink stand out. 

Here are our top garnishes to include in your tequila gift basket: 

  • Orange peel
  • Grapefruit
  • Jalapeno (For an extra spicy kick!)
  • Rosemary

If you would like to have more tequila gift basket ideas, drop us an email or call us. We would be happy to curate something for you.

Ice For Your Cool Tequila Gifts

Anejo tequilas can be enjoyed neat, but adding some good ice for those tequila cocktails is key. 

At 180 Drinks, we can deliver large ice cube trays that go well with your luxury tequila gift.

Tequila Glass Gift Set

The most popular version of having tequila is taking shots. 

Tequila shot glasses abound, but we also think that using a tasting glass or wine glass really opens the flavors up. 

Before you think of adding glassware to your tequila gift, we suggest you ask the following questions of your giftee. 

Do they like to drink tequila as a shot or do they like sipping it slowly? 

Do they like it on the rocks?

These answers will decide what kind of glasses would go well with your tequila gift. 

There are a number of shot glasses, of course. But a tulip glass is great to concentrate the aromas for those who drink tequila neat. A lowball glass works great for cocktails.

Tequila Gift Box Tools 

At 180 Drinks, we can also provide high quality professional barware for your tequila presents. Our curated set of bar tools are selected for building drinks with the best practices and durability in mind. 

Remember what we said earlier about using herbs and spices in tequila cocktails? The key to extracting the herbs’ delicate flavors is to use a bar tool called the muddler. 

Adding these little touches to your gift ensures that the tequila gift is both thoughtful and useful.

Tequila Cocktail Recipes And Instructional Videos

No need to scour YouTube after you send our tequila-themed gifts! 

Our unique tequila gifts come with thoughtful recipe cards and an instructional video to guide you through the drink building process.

Tequila Themed Gifts With Chocolates

It’s a bit more difficult to pair tequila with chocolates. But tequila works well with mint chocolate or any other fruit-flavored chocolate. 

We have also found that chocolate with spices such as cinnamon balance the harshness from the flavors of tequila. 

Adding chocolates to your tequila gift basket makes the gift even more attractive to the recipient!  

Apart from chocolates, we offer other snacks as well to compliment our tequila gifts. To learn more about the other food accompaniments consult the individual gift descriptions.

Tequila Gifts FAQs

Is liquor included in my tequila gift box?

Liquor is included in our tequila cocktail gifts as an upgrade. We include liquor optionally because sometimes customers would like to pair their drink gift with a specific liquor that is not included, or because customers would like to ship our drink gifts to other provinces in Canada or internationally to the US.

 

We always endeavor to accommodate special requests. For an additional fee, we will allow substitutions for a preferred spirit, or we will coordinate liquor delivery through a local merchant. For a quote for either of these options, please contact us.

Can I change the type of liquor included in your tequila related gifts?

Of course! We will gladly make substitutions. This may be subject to additional fees. Please contact us for a customized quote.

What is the difference between a tequila gift and a mezcal gift?

Both tequila and mezcal are made from agave, so it’s easy to get confused. Tequila is a type of mezcal, but it can only be made from Weber blue agave. Mezcal can be made from more than 50 species of agave. The agave used in tequila is also steamed in ovens while for mezcal, agave is roasted in underground pits. This produces the characteristic smoky notes in mezcal.  

Where can I have a tequila delivery gift ?

What Are Some Of The Best Tequila Gift Ideas And Tequila Themed Gifts?

If your favorite person’s favorite drink is tequila, we have you covered with some of the best tequila gift ideas: 

 

Tequila custom glassware: You can enhance the flavor of tequila or mezcal with the right glassware. A Margarita glass makes for a great addition to any gift. 

 

Tequila books: Think of books such as The Tequila Ambassador or ¡Tequila!: Distilling the Spirit of Mexico, which give you the history and culture behind this spirit. 

 

Shot glasses: Yes, because who doesn’t love a good collection of tequila shot glasses?

Apart from these, there are many other tequila related gifts you can consider. Get in touch to know more about our range of tequila themed gifts.

What is the difference between a one-time drink gift and a subscription?

A one-time drink gift is delivered once, whereas a drink gift subscription delivers a new unique drink each month for a selected duration. You can purchase a drink gift for 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, or Infinity (Billed Monthly). 

 

Instead of a one-time gift, why not give a tequila gift that keeps on giving? With the 180 Drinks gift subscription, you give the tequila drinker in your life periodic deliveries of tequila tasting boxes and other spirits. We offer mini tequila tasting gift sets with blanco tequila, reposado tequila, anejo tequila, and mezcal options.
