Tequila, the undisputed national drink of Mexico, is an alcoholic drink made in the arid areas of central Mexico from the fermented and distilled juices of the native Agave plants, also known locally as Maguey. By Mexican law, Tequila can be produced only in specifically designated geographic areas: the state of Jalisco in the west of the country and small areas in the neighboring states of Tamaulipas, Nayarit, Michoacán and Guanajuato, and must be produced from only the Blue Agave (Weber Blue Agave, Agave Tequilana).

The reason for this is that the designated region is historically known to grow the finest quality Agave, and the Blue Agave produces the finest quality Tequilas. Similar Agave spirits are produced from other regions or from other species of Agave; these spirits are known as Mezcal. Any spirit produced by any type of Agave plant from any region of Mexico is classified as Mezcal. All Tequilas are Mezcal, but not all Mezcals are classified as Tequila. As an analogy, just as cognac is a brandy from a specific region in France, Tequila is a Mezcal from a specific region in Mexico.
