What is the History of Tequila?
Way back in 1000BC, the Spanish would make a fermented beverage known as pulque, made from the agave plant. As time went by, the Spanish started running out of their own brandy and thus distilled agave to produce a kind of America’s distilled spirit. The production of the tequila we know today only came to existence in the 16th century. It was first produced in the current city of Tequila. A Spanish aristocrat is believed to have started mass production of tequila. Don Jose Antonio would then get to be known as the tequila father after he made the first tequila in Jalisco, Mexico, thus birthing the modern tequila industry.
