Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant. It is primarily produced in the Mexican State of Jalisco, and also in areas surrounding the city of Tequila just northwest of Guadalajara. It is recognized as a Mexican Designation of Origin product in more than 40 countries. Technically tequila is a specialized type of “Mezcal,” an ancient Mexican spirit made from numerous varieties of agave and often imbued with a smoky quality via its production process.
