Tequila

Tequila comes from the Mexican provence of Jalisco and is distilled from the juice of the Blue Agave plant. It is a succulent rather than a Cacti, but like Cacti it stores water within its leaves. It is a relatively new spirit. Although fermebnted Agave juice has been drunk for many centuries in Mexico, it wasn't until 1795, when the son of cactus farmer Don Jose Antonio Cuervo first produced a "mezcal wine" at his La Rojena distillery. It took another 150 years before Tequila was exported in 1945. The invention of the Margerita in the 1950's turned it into a worldwide phenomenon.
