By all means, doesn't need to be a overpriced fancy bottle like some sell (saw a machine gun and a rifle in Specs today-pretty cool, but have no idea on the quality of what's inside).
Myself, made the mistake years ago of being 18 - Cancun - too much Tequila - I mean WAY TOO much Tequila. Can't stand the stuff ever since...
How does he like to drink his tequila? Does he sip it straight up, or does he use it in mixed drinks? Don't waste money on a top shelf tequila for mixed drinks. Don Julio Blanco is a very good tequila and you can find it anywhere from 50-70 bucks. I prefer mine straight up, chilled with a twist of lime.
