What’s Tequila made from?
This beverage is a distilled alcohol made from the blue agave plant. Mezcal is also made from agave. But varieties can differ. It originated in the city bearing its name in Mexico. The City of Tequila is located in the highlands of Jalisco, a western Mexican state. The blue agave plant grows very well in the volcanic red soil of the region. They harvest more than 300 million agave plants annually. The way agave grows depends on the region it is from. The highlands region offers blue agaves that are larger and sweeter in taste and scent. Lowland agaves have an herbaceous aroma and flavor.
