Answer by Jsanthara
Silver tequila is a clear spirit that can be either 100% agave or a mixture. These tequilas are aged no more 60 days in stainless steel tanks, if they are aged at all. Gold Tequila is an unaged silver tequila that is colored and flavored with caramel.
Gold tequila is usually smoother and sweeter and is good for taking shots. Silver tequila has more of a bite and is usually used for margaritas and mixed drinks.
