Tequilas of various styles
Tequila (Spanish pronunciation: [teˈkila]) is a type of mezcal; specifically, a Blue Agave-based spirit made primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 kilometres (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.
.The red volcanic soil in the region surrounding Tequila is particularly well suited to the growing of the blue agave, and more than 300 million of the plants are harvested there each year.^ Despite the principled avoidance of some of our more Catherine MacKinnon minded friends, our Tequila and Porn party is still the most well-attended event that we do all year.

Mexican laws state that tequila can be produced only in the state of Jalisco and limited regions in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas.[2]
Tequila is most often made at a 38–40% alcohol content (76–80 proof), but can be produced between 35–55% alcohol content (70–110 proof).[3] Though most tequilas are 80 proof, many distillers will distill to 100 proof and then cut it down with water to reduce its harshness. Some of the more well respected brands distill the alcohol to 80 proof without using additional water as a diluter.

History

A distillery oven loaded with agave "piñas" or "pineapples", the first step in the production of tequila.
.Tequila was first produced in the 16th century near the location of the city of Tequila, which was not officially established until 1656. The Aztec people had previously made a fermented beverage from the agave plant, which they called octli (later, and more popularly called pulque), long before the Spanish arrived in 1521. When the Spanish conquistadors ran out of their own brandy, they began to distill this agave drink to produce North America's first indigenous distilled spirit.^ All you kids 21 and over better check out the official Slam City Jam Afterparty with DJ Kid Capri on Saturday, August 26 at Tequila Nightclub , 219 17th Ave ...

.Some 80 years later, around 1600, Don Pedro Sánchez de Tagle, the Marquis of Altamira, began mass-producing tequila at the first factory in the territory of modern-day Jalisco.^ This began long ago (like 80's long ago) to get around sysadmins snooping through e-mail and files.

By 1608, the colonial governor of Nueva Galicia had begun to tax his products.
.The tequila that is popular today was first mass-produced in the early 1800s in Guadalajara, Mexico.^ Having received approval for the wax casts by Muttpop , the manufacturer began to produce metal replicas of the silicone molds for use in the mass production of the Tequila figure.

.Don Cenobio Sauza, founder of Sauza Tequila and Municipal President of the Village of Tequila from 1884–1885, was the first to export tequila to the United States[5], and shortened the name from "Tequila Extract" to just "Tequila" for the Amercian markets.^ Gobi’s on his flight over to Los Angeles (his FIRST time in the United States) as this is written.

Don Cenobio's grandson Don Francisco Javier gained international attention for insisting that "there cannot be tequila where there are no agaves!" His efforts led to the practice that real tequila can only come from the State of Jalisco.

Recent history

Blue agave fields and ancient distilleries near Tequila are recognized as part of the World Heritage List.
Since 2002, sales of high priced tequilas, called "ultra-premium" and "super-premium" by marketeers, have increased 28 percent. .That is an average growth rate of 8.6 percent per year, as reported by the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States.^ A directory of ratings, reviews, and recommendations for Nightclubs and Bars throughout the United States.

Sales exceeded expectations by reaching well over 10 million cases as shown in the 2007 report by IWSR based on Adams Liquor Handbook. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, increasing worldwide popularity of tequila drove corporate interest in tequila. Notable developments as a result included:
  • The purchase of Herradura by Brown-Forman for $776 million in September 2006.[6]
  • A new NOM (Norma Oficial Mexicana) for tequila (NOM-006-SCFI-2005) was issued in 2006, and among other changes, introduced a category of tequila called "extra añejo" or "ultra-aged" which must be aged a minimum of 3 years.[7]
  • The purchase of the Sauza and El Tesoro brands by massive holding company Fortune Brands.[8]
.Although some tequilas have remained as family owned brands, most well-known tequila brands are owned by large multinational corporations.^ Despite the principled avoidance of some of our more Catherine MacKinnon minded friends, our Tequila and Porn party is still the most well-attended event that we do all year.
  • Tequila and Porn || kuro5hin.org 18 January 2010 11:16 UTC www.kuro5hin.org [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.However, there are over 100 distilleries making over nine hundred brands of tequila in Mexico and over 2,000 brand names have been registered (2009 Statistics.^ And last, but not least, there were hundreds of great looking Tequila fans joining Muttpop for the celebration.

Due to this, each bottle of tequila contains a serial number (NOM) depicting which distillery the tequila was produced in. Because there are only so many distilleries, multiple brands of tequila come from the same location.[7]
The Tequila Regulatory Council of Mexico originally did not permit flavored tequila to carry the tequila name.[9] In 2004, the Council decided to allow flavored tequila to be called tequila, with the exception of pure agave tequila, which still could not be flavored.[9]
.A one-liter bottle of limited-edition premium tequila was sold for $225,000 in July 2006 in Tequila, Jalisco, by the company Tequila Ley .925. The bottle which contains the tequila is a two-kilo display of platinum and gold.^ Art to be sold will include the two Tequila illustrations Gobi drew for the Tequila Figure box.

This process involves heating the tequila to over 800 degrees C (1,400 degrees F) to break its molecular structure and be vaporised. The tequila particles are then settled upon steel or silicon trays to form a thin and pure uniform layer.[11] Extremely cheap to produce and far too small for jewels, the results are hoped to have numerous commercial and industrial applications such as in computer chips or cutting instruments.[12][13]

All authentic, regulated Tequilas will have a NOM identifier on the bottle. The important laws since 1990 were NOM-006-SCFI-1993 and the later update NOM-006-SCFI-1994 and the most recent revision in late 2005, NOM-006-SCFI-2005.
The number after NOM is the distillery number, assigned by the government. NOM does not indicate the location of the distillery, merely the parent company or - in the case where a company leases space in a plant - the physical plant where the tequila was manufactured.

TMA

For more detail on TMA, see the entry in Agave tequilana
.TMA ("tristeza y muerte de agave") is a blight that has reduced the production of the agave grown to produce tequila.^ Having received approval for the wax casts by Muttpop , the manufacturer began to produce metal replicas of the silicone molds for use in the mass production of the Tequila figure.

This has resulted in lower production and higher prices throughout the early 2000s, and due to the long maturation of the plant, will likely continue to affect prices for years to come.[18]

Production

Production of tequila and agave in 2008. Dark green for tequila and light green for agave
Harvesting the agave plant remains a manual effort, unchanged by modern farming technologies, and stretching back hundreds of years. The agave is planted, tended, and harvested by hand.[19] The men who harvest it, the "jimadores", possess generations of knowledge about the plants and the ways in which they need to be harvested.[19] The jimadores must be able to work swiftly in the tight rows, pull out the hijuelos (Agave offspring) without damaging the mother plant, clear the piñas (Spanish for pineapples), and decide when each plant is ready to be harvested . Too soon and there are not enough sugars, too late and the plant will have used its sugars to grow a quiote (20–40 foot high stem), with seeds on the top that are then scattered by the wind. The piñas, weighing 40 to 70 pounds, are cut away with a special knife called a coa.[20] They are then shredded, their juices pressed out and put into fermentation tanks and vats. Some tequila companies still use the traditional method (artisanal) in which the piñas are crushed with a Tahona (stone wheel). The musto, (Agave juice, and sometimes the fiber) is then allowed to ferment in either wood or stainless steel vats for several days to convert the sugars into alcohol. Each company keeps its own yeast a closely guarded secret.[19] .The fermented product is then distilled once to produce what is called "ordinario", a cloudy or milky liquid, and then distilled for a second time to produce a clear, silver Tequila.^ Having received approval for the wax casts by Muttpop , the manufacturer began to produce metal replicas of the silicone molds for use in the mass production of the Tequila figure.

Some distilleries distill the product again to produce a triple distilled product. From there the Tequila is diluted and bottled as a "silver Tequila", or it is pumped into barrels to begin the aging process.
.Usually, there is a clear difference in taste between tequila that is made from lowland and highland agave plants.^ RAW TEQUILAS 20 EXTRA SPICY TEQUILAS 24 ORIGINAL TEQUILAS 3 different ART PRINTS (Only 50 of each made) T-SHIRTS MINI-ZINES STICKERS .

Agave plants that are grown in the highlands often have more sweet fruit flavor, but also more vegetal notes due to the growing process. Though the distinction has become blurred recently due to the agave shortage that arose in 1999/2000. Since then, many of the larger lowland producers have rented property in the highlands and relied on agave from both areas to produce their tequila.
Nevertheless, most agave plants are grown on west-facing slopes, allowing them to receive the most amount of sunlight throughout the day. These plants are taller, wider, and juicier. Agave grown in the lowlands have more earthy flavors, and are typically on the smaller side.[citation needed]

Types of tequila

There are two basic categories of tequila: mixtos and 100% agave. .Mixtos use no less than 51% agave, with other sugars making up the remainder.^ Growing up, my family and I used to make homemade popcorn every single night.
  • Chile Lime Tequila Popcorn Recipe - 101 Cookbooks 18 January 2010 11:16 UTC www.101cookbooks.com [Source type: General]

Mixtos use both glucose and fructose sugars.
With 100% agave tequila, blanco or plata is harsher with the bold flavors of the distilled agave up front, while reposado and añejo are smoother, subtler, and more complex. As with other spirits that are aged in casks, tequila takes on the flavors of the wood, while the harshness of the alcohol mellows. The major flavor distinction with 100% agave tequila is the base ingredient, which is more vegetal than grain spirits (and often more complex).
Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:[7]
.
  • Blanco ("white") or plata ("silver"): white spirit, un-aged and bottled or stored immediately after distillation, or aged less than two months in stainless steel or neutral oak barrels;
  • Joven ("young") or oro ("gold"): is the result of blending Silver Tequila with Reposado and/or Añejo and/or extra Añejo Tequila;
  • Reposado ("rested"): aged a minimum of two months, but less than a year in oak barrels;
  • Añejo ("aged" or "vintage"): aged a minimum of one year, but less than three years in oak barrels;
  • Extra Añejo ("extra aged" or "ultra aged"): aged a minimum of three years in oak barrels.^ I had just spent 8 months in the outback and only the day before gotten back lab results confirming two kinds of intestinal worms and various amoebae.

    ^ Muttpop received a shipment with prototypes of all three versions of Tequila (ORIGINAL, EXTRA SPICY, and RAW).

    This category was established in March 2006.

Aging process

Tequila being rested or aged in oak barrels
Reposado may be rested in oak barrels or casks as large as 20,000 litres, allowing for richer and more complex flavors. The preferred oak comes from US, France or Canada, and is usually white oak. Some companies char the wood to impart a smoky flavor, or use barrels that were previously used with different kinds of alcohol (e.g. whiskey, scotch, or wine). Some reposados can also be aged in new wood barrels to achieve the same woody flavor and smoothness, but in less time.[21]
Añejos are often rested in barrels that have been previously used to rest reposados. The barrels cannot be more than 600 liters, and most are in the 200-liter range. Many of the barrels used are from whiskey or bourbon distilleries in America, France, or Canada, and Jack Daniels barrels are especially popular.[22] .This treatment creates many of the aspects of the dark color and more complex flavors of the añejo tequila.^ As much as Muttpop liked the first prototype of the ORIGINAL Tequila, the Muttpop crew felt that it was possible to bring a more refined look to the Tequila figure by slightly tweaking the colors.

^ So, last week we saw for the very first time Tequila in full color and many of us thought nothing could make it even better.

After aging—a period of four years is standard—the añejo can be removed from the wood barrels and placed in stainless steel tanks to reduce the amount of evaporation that can occur in the barrels.[21]

The worm

  • TEQUILA | SPIKE 18 January 2010 11:16 UTC www.spike.com [Source type: General]

Only certain mezcals, usually from the state of Oaxaca, are ever sold con gusano, and that only began as a marketing gimmick in the 1940s. The worm is actually the larval form of the moth Hypopta agavis, which lives on the agave plant. Finding one in the plant during processing indicates an infestation and, correspondingly, a lower quality product. .However this misconception continues, and even with all the effort and marketing to represent tequila as a premium liquor—similar to the way Cognac is viewed in relation to brandy—there are some opportunist producers for the shooters-and-fun market who blur these boundaries.^ For our friends who do drink, however, there's pretty much a one or two drink minimum unless they're driving or are taking medication or have some other good reason like that.

Brands

There are many brands of tequila; the Consejo Regulador del Tequila reports 901 registered brands from 128 producers for the year 2008.[25]

Drinking tequila

In Mexico, tequila is often drunk straight. .It is popular in some regions to drink fine tequila with a side of sangrita—a sweet, sour and spicy drink typically made from orange juice, grenadine (or tomato juice) and hot chilies.^ A total of 250 Extra Spicy Tequilas will be made.

This is called "tequila cruda" and is sometimes referred to as "training wheels", "lick-sip-suck", or "lick-shoot-suck" (referring to the way in which the combination of ingredients is imbibed). The drinker moistens the back of their hand below the index finger (usually by licking) and pours on the salt. Then the salt is licked off the hand, the tequila is then drunk and the fruit slice is quickly bitten. It is common for groups of drinkers to do this simultaneously. Drinking tequila in this way is often erroneously called a Tequila Slammer (which is in fact a mix of tequila and carbonated drink). .Though the traditional Mexican shot is straight tequila, lime is the fruit of choice when a chaser must be used.^ A tequila bottle smashes onto the hard Mexican desert and now an alcoholic tequila worm must make a...

[27] It is believed that the salt lessens the "burn" of the tequila and the sour fruit balances and enhances the flavor. .In Germany and some other countries, tequila oro (gold) is often consumed with cinnamon before and slices of orange after, while tequila blanco (silver) is consumed with salt and lime.^ The kid snorts a line of salt, takes the shot of tequila, then squirts the lime into his eye .

Finally, as with other popular liquors, there exist a number of shot-related drinking games and "stunt" drinks such as body shots.
.It should be noted that many of the higher-quality, 100% agave tequilas do not impart significant alcohol burn, and drinking them with salt and lime is likely to remove much of the flavor.^ As much as Muttpop liked the first prototype of the ORIGINAL Tequila, the Muttpop crew felt that it was possible to bring a more refined look to the Tequila figure by slightly tweaking the colors.

These tequilas are usually drunk from a snifter glass, instead of a shot glass, and savoured, instead of quickly gulped.[citation needed]

Tequila glasses

A margarita glass
.When served neat (without any additional ingredients), tequila is most often served in a narrow shot glass called a caballito ("Little Horse" in Spanish),[28] but can often be found in anything from a snifter to a tumbler.^ It works best, though, if you try to get everyone to have a shot or two of tequila in addition to whatever else they want to drink.

The Consejo Regulador del Tequila (Tequila Regulatory Council) approved an "official tequila glass" in 2002 called the Ouverture Tequila glass, made by Riedel.[29]
The margarita glass, rimmed with salt, sugar, or plain, is a staple for the entire tequila/fruit mixed drink genre, including the margarita itself.

Other drinks

.There is an almost endless variety of drinks that involve tequila, relying only on the imagination of the preparer.^ As you can probably guess, tequila isn't the only drink served at T&P. But it is the alcoholic centerpiece.
  • Tequila and Porn || kuro5hin.org 18 January 2010 11:16 UTC www.kuro5hin.org [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

As with most of the hard liquors, there is a martini variant that involves tequila as well as a large number of tequila drinks made by adding a fruit juice such as the Tequila Sunrise and Matador. .Sodas and other carbonated drinks are a common mixer, as in the Tequila Slammer.^ Tequila and Porn (hereafter referred to as 'T&P') is just what it sounds like: at the party the guests drink of lot of tequila (and other beverages, many of them alcoholic) and watch a lot of hardcore porn.

Tequila is not fermented from cactus. Agaves and cacti are unrelated, though both are succulents.
In the United States, National Tequila Day is July 24.[30]
