World Best Tequila

The blue agave plant is the source to tequila’s unique flavor and by law, tequila must be at least 51 percent agave to be considered tequila. The World Best Tequila uses 100% agave in production. To be considered tequila, it must be produced in one of five historically defined Mexican states.

The rich, red volcanic soils in the region of Tequila, Mexico are well suited for growing the blue agave, and more than 300 million of the plants are harvested there each year. Agave grows differently depending on the region. Blue agaves grown in the highlands Los Altos region are larger and sweeter in aroma and taste. Only Blue Agaves are used to make Tequila. This is the main distinction from mescal.

Mexican laws state that tequila can only be produced in the state of Jalisco and limited municipalities in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas. The agave plant takes about 10 years to fully mature for harvest. The heart of the agave, which can weigh over 100 lbs is used to produce this fine liquor. Almost 85 percent of all tequila produced is consumed in the United States and Mexico. Tequila is recognized as a Mexican designation of origin product in more than 40 countries.

Tequila must have between 35 and 55 percent alcohol content (70 and 110 U.S. proof). It must contain at least 40 percent alcohol (80 U.S. proof) to be sold in the United States and Canada.

  1. Woah! Ten years to fully mature and correctly be used in the production of tequila; that’s mind-blowing. I have just recently started trying out drinks that are stronger than wine and so far, whisky has been the most heavy alcoholic beverage I’ve tried. Been thinking about trying out tequila but I’m not quite sure where to start. Is there any recommendation you may have for something that’s not completely dry but rather a bit sweet?

    • Hi Stephanie,

      I believe the classic tequila drink is the Margarita with the original being a lime flavored. However, there are many flavors today including strawberry, mango, pineapple Jalapeno, watermelon, peach, apple cider and many more prepared frozen. I like the strawberry myself. These are great with spicy foods and common at  Mexican.restaurants. These are sweet and very refreshing, so try one at your next outing.

      Kind regards, Joe
