July 24, 2018, is a day when everyone in the USA will grab a lime and salt. It’s National Tequila Day in the USA. Tequila is made from the blue agave plant. It is named after the small town of Tequila in a valley west of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. This spirit was known as mezcal wine before.
In Mexico, a variety of succulents are used for several purposes. Out of all, only Blue Agave produces the nectar to distil tequila. This plant is raised in the highlands region. It is larger in size and sweeter in taste and fragrance. Agave that is grown in the lowlands is more seasoned in fragrance and flavours.
Mexican law stats tequila is only tequila if it is produced in Jalisco. If the same ingredients are distilled somewhere else, it is not tequila. Recently, Mexico has declared that the first National Tequila Day in Mexico will be on March 16, 2019. This is particularly good news for the town of Tequila which has become a popular destination for tourists in recent years.
On this occasion, we have a short list of tequila from Mexico that you should try on this National Tequila Day.
