|Tequila is North America’s first indigenous distilled spirit, a strong distilled alcoholic liquor. It’s made from the blue agave plant, and is produced via double-distillation in the area around the city of Tequila, located in the western Mexico state of Jalisco. The agave plant grows exceptionally well in the volcanic soil of the region, and Mexican law dictates that tequila can only be produced in Jalisco. Mezcal, the precursor of tequila, can be made from five different varieties of agave, is single-distilled, and is made mostly in the Mexican state of Oaxaca.
