Porfidio Plata (Limited Edition) has been created with the blue agave purist in mind and is bottled fresh after distillation. Specifically, the spirit is not naturally mellowed through ageing in wood barrels and so preserved in its original state, fresh from the still.
What sets Porfidio Plata apart when compared to common Blanco 100% Agave Tequila® is its greatly reduced methanol content, which results in extra smoothness. This is because Porfidio Plata is made from from cold-pressed agave juice, which is enzymatically hydrolyzed; rather than from hot-pressed agave juice, which is heat hydrolyzed.
Sipped by some, used as a premium cocktail ingredient by many, and consumed as "tequila shots" by others, there is no clearly defined "best enjoyed as" recommendation for this versatile, unaged, distilled spirit.
