The Story of Jalisco Tequila
Tequila is a distilled beverage that is made from the blue agave plant that is found in Mexico. Interestingly, Mexican law states that
tequila can be produced only in the Mexican State of Jalisco and limited production in other areas of Mexico. The United States even officially recognizes that Tequila can only be produced in Mexico.
Mexico has even been granted the international right to the word “Tequila”.
Tequila is probably most famous for the “worm” that can be found in the bottom of the bottle of SOME Tequila products but the truth is that MOST Tequila does not come with a worm in it. Most people agree that the “worm” in the bottle was just a marketing idea originating sometime in the 1940’s.
Tequila was first produced as far back as the 1500’s near a city that was later formally named “Tequila”.
