Good friends who just wanted to drink tequila that tastes anything but plain and common are the reason behind the creation of Milagro products. Smooth, crisp and clear, and agave tasting, its taste when they uttered “un milagro.”
Let’s find out how much of a miracle its flavors are and if the Milagro price list is also fitted.
Milagro Tequila: How It Started
Like how traditional tequila is made, Milagro Tequila is also made from blue agave from Jalisco Highlands in Mexico, where you can find quality piña fruits. Friends Danny Schneeweiss and Moy Guindi wanted to create world-renowned quality drink bottles and imparted the idea to their master distiller, Pedro Juarez.
He believes in taking the process slow to get the best out of the fruit’s juices, and that is how this brand came to be. The company’s new owners, William Grant & Sons, approve of how tequila Milagro is made; thus, it is now marketed in the United States.
How To Drink It
Drinking this beverage neat would be the best way to honor the processing that took 36 hours inside the brick oven and fermented on both pot still and a column still. The sugars of the blue agave were thoroughly cooked, which brought out all the flavors. You can just put ice on this drink or blend it with lime juice and shake it. Garnish it and enjoy the smooth taste.

Compared to Other Brands
Hornitos is a good quality tequila, but its clientele is not the same as Milagro. The longest time Hornitos age their tequila is two months compared to the latter, who does a lot in order to age their product. This is why their most expensive tequila, roughly $25.99 – $35.99 at 750ml, is priced similarly to the standard bottle from Milagro, around $21.99 – $27.99. Hornitos is not a bad product despite the cheap cost.
Don Julio and Milagro are almost on the same playing field regarding their audience and pricing. All of their drinks are made of high-quality blue agave juices and have a tedious process depending on the age of the drink. When it comes to prices, Don Julio Real Tequila is roughly $399.99 – $419.99, and the cost for the most expensive Milagro Unico 2 is almost half of it. The prices Don Julio has are because of their premium standing.
Another big name in the tequila industry is Patron. Its Patron Gran Burdeo is priced around $419.99 – $499.99 per bottle and, if sold per shot, is at about $190-$195. From Mexico City to the world, the stores have accepted that Patron has priced their bottles as such since the brand has proven that their bottle is of the highest quality. Serve it mixed with juice or neat. It would still taste great.
Avion Tequila can be considered a rival when it comes to the clientele that they are serving. Their prices are almost the same, but Avion is still costly. The 750ml bottle of Avion Silver ranges at roughly $34.99 – $38.99, which is a couple more doubles to what is stated on the bottle of Milagro Tequila Silver. If you are after a cheaper choice but a flavorful drink, this is a good pick.

A bottle of Milagro Silver or a Milagro Anejo has its following. The intention for this from the start is for the young drinkers all over the world. However, it crawled to the hearts of many tequila drinkers worldwide not just because of its affordable prices but also because of its extraordinarily concocted taste.
Prices are rarely the reason why a tequila bottle is bought. Sipping after good food or a tiring day is one reason why a bottle is kept inside the house. Milagro is a good choice because of the flavor, and that makes a huge difference.
