What is Tequila?
Tequila can trace its roots back to the 16th century. With the arrival of Spanish conquistadors to the North American continent, the introduction of copper stills allowed for a whole new distilling process. In Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico locals began distilling Blue Agave, which is the only succulent that produces the nectar to distill tequila.
Mexico has officially stated that tequila is only tequila if it is made within Jalisco. Additionally, there are laws that limit production to regions in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacan, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas (although other regions of the world do in fact produce tequila as well). With that much care and dedication to the production of tequila, it’s no wonder it is appreciated around the world. And of course, why it gets its own National Day!
