What Tequila Type Is Kosher?

The type of tequila that is kosher is the Blanco or Silver (White).

Even without the certification under Jewish guidelines, Blanco or Silver tequilas are considered kosher. 

This type is usually made using pure ingredients and processed with no added flavorings, glycerin, and colorings, acceptable by the kosher guidelines. 

Other tequila types like Reposado, Añejo, and Extra Añejo are not traditionally considered kosher unless they have certifications.  But does frothing tequila make it better?

Does Tequila Need Kosher Certification?


Blanco and Silver tequilas don’t need kosher certification.

This type of tequila is traditionally considered kosher, as they don’t contain flavorings or grain alcohols, included in the prohibited food by Jewish law and religion. 


Reposado tequilas need certification or seal from the Jewish authorities to be considered tequila kosher Passover. 


Like Reposado, Añejo tequilas need certification or seal from authorized Jewish agencies to qualify for kosher Passover.

Añejo can be kosher, depending on the ingredients used. 

Extra Anejo

This type also needs certification or a seal. It depends on the process and ingredients used to make Extra Añejo tequilas. But does aging tequila make it smoother?


What makes tequila not kosher?

Tequila is considered not kosher [1] if it doesn’t comply with traditional Jewish law. Pure spirits, without the possible addition of colors, flavorings, and glycerine, are certified Kosher. 

How do you know if tequila is kosher?

You may know that tequila is kosher, depending on its type. Blanco (or White and Silver) are considered kosher, even without the certification. However, Añejo, Extra Añejo, and Reposado need certificates as they might contain elements prohibited by Kosher law. 

Can you drink tequila during Passover?

Yes, you can drink tequila during Passover [2], but only the bottles that are Kosher-certified or made from 100% agave, as per the Kashrut Division of the Orthodox Union. 

Final Say

Now you have the list of kosher-certified tequilas for Passover; you can start planning and shopping ahead to prepare for the upcoming holiday. 

While some of your favorites aren’t included on this list, maybe it’s time to shift or explore new spirits that will keep your holidays alive. Cheers!
