HISTORY OF TEQUILA
Legend has it that tequila emerged when a beam of lightning suddenly came down on a field of agave, breaking one of the agave plants in half and revealing the core. The plant burned for a few moments due to the heat of lightning, and from the inside, sprouted a fragrant nectar which locals drank.
Nowadays, tequila is a liquor obtained from the fermented, and subsequently distilled, juice of the core of the variant Agave Tequilana weber better known as “BLUE AGAVE”. We can say that tequila is another one of the products resulting from Mexican miscegenation.
