Best Tequilas to Try on National Tequila Day


These Tequila brands ranked the top when judged based on quality, value and packaging. Try them out on this National Tequila Day and share your experience on #LSCTequilaDay

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.
