To be labeled Tequila it must be:
- Made in Mexico
- From one of five authorized areas – Jalisco, Guanajuato, Michoacan, Nayarit or Tamaulipas
- Be distilled from 100% Blue Weber agave
If it doesn’t meet these requirements, it must be labeled as an “Agave Spirit” or Mezcal.
Tapatío Tequila meets all three conditions. It’s produced at the La Alteña distillery in the mountainous region of Jalisco, Mexico. This region is famous for growing the best blue weber agave.
