TEQUILA: Like champagne, cognac and some fine wines, tequila can only be produced in five regions in Mexico. The sprit must be at least 51% derived from blue agave and rest made up from another neutral sprit. The agave harvest is a labour of love and time as it can take 8-12 years to harvest and can grow as much as 7 feet tall.
