National Tequila Day

With a little lime and salt on July 24th, commemorate National Tequila Day. To commemorate the day, mix up a Margarita, Paloma, or a Mamasita. People have been making Tequila for centuries, and it was once known as mezcal wine.


Tequila is mezcal, but not Tequila is Tequila, in fact. Tequila is distilled from a particular variety of agave plant, which is why. In addition, the legislation shields its production. We'll take a sip and delve into Tequila's history.

Tequila history

It all started around the 16th century. Cortez and his Spanish conquistadors arrived on the North American continent. They didn't care much for the fermented mezcal wine that was served to them. However, the Spanish introduced copper stills to the population. The distillation process begins.

Now, our journey takes us to Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. The town made a name for themselves by distilling Blue Agave, which is located in a valley west of Guadalajara, Mexico. Even though a variety of succulents in Mexico produce mezcal, only one produces the nectar to distill Tequila, even though a variety of succulents produce mezcal. In the highland area, the Blue Agave grows. In fact, the growing weather contributes to a larger size and sweeter tasting agave. In comparison, agave grown in the lowland regions of the United States has a more delicate taste and odor.

The legislation in Mexico protects Tequila production. Tequila is only Tequila if it is made within Jalisco, according to the law. In addition, the law limits production to areas in Guanajuato, Michoacan, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas. However, Tequila cannot be identified as such as those that were distilled somewhere else.

Interestingly, many of the tequila companies today are the very first commercial producers of Tequila. José Antonio Cuervo, for example, was granted the first license for making the favored drink. He owned a well-known company as well. Don Cenobio Sauza and Félix López, two other brands, whose companies are still in some form today, are among Don Cenobio Sauza and Félix López.

Connoisseurs savor a good tequila like a good whiskey in cocktails such as the margarita or tequila sunrise. As a result, savvy drinkers experience Tequila's smooth revival as a result. Surprisingly, it isn't the firewater they remember from their youth.
