Why Tequila Hangovers Feel So. Much. Worse.
Food & Drink
> Wine & Spirits
We’ve all complained before that different types of alcohol seem to give us different types of hangovers. The question is, is that really true?
The answer is yes. Scientists at Brown University Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies and the University of Michigan Medical School found that more congeners in alcohol typically results in a worse hangover.
What is a congener, you ask?
Great question. In simple terms, congeners are by-products of alcohol fermentation. They are small amounts of toxins like methanol, acetaldehyde and tannins, and they are responsible for the way alcohol tastes and smells. More of these toxins are found in darker alcohols like red wine, bourbon, whisky and tequila.
