Fun facts about Tequila

-In the United States, National Tequila Day is July 24.

-Tequila is an agave-based spirit made primarily in the area surrounding Tequila, in the northwest of Guadalajara and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican State of Jalisco.

-U.S. and Mexican laws state that tequila can be produced anywhere in Mexico, and the country boasts several other tequila-producing regions.

-Tequila is most often made at a 38–40% alcohol content (76–80 proof), but there are also several varieties of tequila produced with 43–46% alcohol content (86–92 proof).

-Since 2002, sales of ultra-premium and super-premium tequilas have grown at a rate of 28 percent.

-Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:

  • blanco ("white") or plata ("silver") – white spirit, un-aged and bottled or stored immediately after distillation, or aged less than two months in oak barrels;
  • oro ("gold") – un-aged "blanco" tequila, blended with rested or aged tequilas, and often with caramel coloring, sugar-based syrup, glycerin, and/or oak extract added so as to resemble aged tequila;
  • reposado ("rested") – aged a minimum of two months, but less than a year in oak barrels;
  • añejo ("aged" or "vintage") – aged a minimum of one year, but less than 3 years in oak barrels;
  • extra añejo ("extra aged" or "ultra aged") – aged a minimum of three years in oak barrels.

-In Mexico, tequila is drunk straight, without salt and lime.

-In Germany and some other countries, tequila oro (gold) is often consumed with cinnamon before and slices of orange after, while tequila blanco (silver) is consumed with salt and lime.
