A popular distilled spirit that is rich in history, Tequila is only made within particular regions in certain Mexican states where the blue Agave plant is grown. After nearly a decade of growing and maturing, the distinctively spiked succulent will be harvested and used in the production of tequila. Using the agave plant is key to the tequila’s unique flavour, giving the well-recognized flavour combination of fruit, pepper and spice.
The two basic categories of tequila are 100% agave and mixtos, which use no less than 51% agave and other sugars. Tequila takes on the flavours of the wood casks it ages in, developing characteristics and aroma, and is bottled in these categories according to their maturation in casks: Blanco, Reposado, Añejo, and Extra Añejo. Around the world, tequila is commonly consumed as a single shot often served with salt and a slice of lime.
