10 Best Bottles of Tequila in the World

You've heard the saying, "One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila... Floor!"

If you didn't know, just one tequila shot gives quite a kick since it's typically 40% alcohol or 80 proof.

Whether you want to relive your college spring break days in Cancun or not, National Tequila Day is July 24.

It's a day when people can come together and celebrate all that is... Tequila!

TheStreet took a look at the best bottles of the Mexican spirit in honor of the occasion, based on the winners of the 2013 International Wine & Spirit Competition.

So grab a lime and some salt... here are the IWSC's selections of Best Tequila, in no particular order...

El Tesoro Tequila Resposado
El Tesoro Tequila Reposado
Manufacturer:  Beam Inc.

Reposado, or rested tequila, is traditionally aged for two months, however Beam Inc. lets its 100% Agave Reposado rest for 11 months in aged oak barrels.

The taste is mellow and rich, with subtle wood tones and a hint of sweetness.

The IWSC refered to it as "fresh and crunchy on the nose with a purity, yet elegant and complex on the finish."


 Herradura Seleccion Suprema extra Anejo Tequila
Herradura Seleccion Suprema extra Anejo Tequila
Manufacturer:  Brown-Forman Corp.

This pricey tequila made from 100% Tequilana Weber Blue Agave can set you back as much as $400 per bottle, though it's not the most expensive of commercial brands.

It rests in barrels for 49 months and it's described by IWSC judges as "soft and refined in the mouth with a good judgement of oak and an encompassing silky mouthfeel."
