According to legend, when the Spanish conquistadors ran out of the brandy they brought from Europe, they began to distill a local agave drink. In 1873, it was dubbed "tequila" by founder Don Cenobio Sauza. Sauza Gold, one of the pioneer spirits from the brand, is double distilled in copper pot stills at low proof to retain the full agave flavor. It offers sweet aromas of caramel and cooked agave with a lightly astringent, sweet finish. Ideal for margaritas.
