Tequila is a distilled spirit produced in a small region of Mexico. It is produced from distillation of fermented mask obtained from the heart or a plant known as “Agave Azul” or blue agave. This heart, similar to a giant pineapple, it is also known as “mezcal”. In nahuatl means “House of the Moon” and is used to signify the marrow, essence, center, etc. Tequila is a product of the meeting of two worlds. It uses a technique originated in the European continent to transform a raw material, which has been cultivated since ancient times and typical of the American land. Over 200 types of agaves can be found in Mexico. And similar alcoholic beverages are produced from those agaves in diverse places. Those are given the generic name of mezcal and take their name from the town in where they are made. That is why we have mezcal of Oaxaca, Cotija, Quitupan, Tonaya, Tuxcacuesco, Apulco, and so on. But undoubtedly, the most famous mezcal is from Tequila, which name comes from an ancient and dynamic town located about 50 kilometers north of Guadalajara, on the way of this city and to other well-known place, the port of San Blas de Nayarit, at the Pacific Coast of Mexico. During colonial times, blue agave thrived in the lands surrounding the county of Tequila. Many large and small factories sprang up to produce the prestigious liquor, known earlier simply as “the wine of Tequila Mezcal”.
