The story of Tequila
The exact history of tequila started with the people of the Aztec, who made a fermented beverage from the agave plant. They called this beverage the Octli (which later came to be called Pulque). All this occurred way before the Spaniards arrived in the 1500s.
Consequently, Hernan Cortes, a Spanish conquistador, invaded Mexico in 1519 and conquered the Aztec Empire, claiming Mexico for Spain. The good news is, wrath wasn’t the only thing Hernan Cortes brought to Mexico.
He also brought with him a distilling procedure that the residents of Tequila (a town in the state of Jalisco, Mexico) quickly put into good use.
Tequila residents already knew that the blue agave plants with green leaves contained sugars that one could ferment, so when the Spaniards ran out of their whiskey, they decided to distill this agave drink and produced North America’s first native, refined spirit.
For lots of years, the drink was only consumed locally, and most of it was only sold exclusively at local distilleries.
