Old Town Tequila Review

There are places that simply sell tequila, and then there is Old Town Tequila.  As the name suggests, this liquor store is located in Old Town, San Diego, California.  Don't let the name fool you, this store sells much more than tequila, and has wines, beer, and about everything else you'll find at a typical liquor store, but let's be really honest here, they are famous for tequila!

I visited this store in the Summer of 2018 after having made many purchases from their online store, which is hands down the best place to buy tequila online.  It's not even close!  Today I'll share with you my review of Old Town Tequila, as well as go over their amazing selection, and you'll clearly see why this is my favorite place to buy tequila.

With an introduction like that, its' hard to choose where to start in this review.  Let's start with their website, as that's where most of you will most likely be using as a touch point.  I do, however, recommend you visit their store one day because it's one of a kind.  Here's a quick review from a local guide.

I can agree with the warning, they do have many boxes on the storefront floor.  However, did I let this bother me?  Hard no!  There was more to enjoy! 

The website is very simple, with categories pointing you every which way you could go as you browse tequila online.  They have links to get tequila in every form possible, including:

  • Anejo
  • Blanco
  • Reposado
  • Extra Anejo
  • Cristalino
  • Highlands Tequila
  • Lowlands Tequila
  • No additives

Have you ever seen a store break it down like that?  I personally haven't, and a lot of my down time goes into tequila research online.   Perhaps even more impressive is the variety of mezcal they offer, including:

  • Anejo
  • Arroqueno
  • Barril
  • Bicuixe
  • Capone
  • Canizo
  • Coyote
  • Cuishe
  • Ensamble
  • Espadin
  • Jabali
  • Joven
  • Madrecuixe
  • Mexicano
  • Pechuga
  • Rare Agave
  • Reposado
  • Tepextate
  • Tobala
  • Tobaxiche

There are also rare agave spirits for sale:

  • Botanical Gin
  • Chato
  • Comiteco
  • Distilado de Agave
  • Raicilla
  • Pox
  • Sotol
  • Bacanora
  • Agave Liqueur
  • Mexico in a Bottle

Rare & Top Shelf Tequilas for Sale

Perhaps the best part about shopping at Old Town is that they have rare tequila that I can't find anywhere else.  Using the “rare & top shelf” feature, I can find limited edition bottles to add to my collection that are among the most rare in the world.

Here's a pic of what they are offering in their rare section currently:

Of course, they also offer organic & kosher tequila, glass sets, gift sets, and even bulk and corporate discounts.  Seriously, this is the Apple Store of tequila, only in a much more quaint, authentic Mexican setting!

Best of all, all shipments are fully insured.  While they do prefer to ship to a business address, they have shipped to my home many times without issue.

Again, if you are in the San Diego area, and love tequila, do yourself a favor and stop by.  Here are a couple pics from my trip there.

I like to take pics of rare tequila bottles I hadn't seen for sale elsewhere.

Old Town tequila shipping right to your door is perhaps the best thing that's ever happened to me, and TequilaReviews.com.  Without it, I'd be very limited to what I can get my hands on, review, and share with the world.
