Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila 65 km northwest of Guadalajara, and in the Jaliscan Highlands of the central western Mexican state of Jalisco.
Types of Tequila
All tequila comes from the piñas of the blue agave plant, but not all tequila tastes the same.
There are two main classifications of tequila, mixto and 100% agave. These two categories of tequila are further categorised according to whether or not the tequila has been aged, and if so for how long. They are (from non-aged to longest aged) Blanco, Joven/Gold, Reposado, Añejo and Extra Añejo.
