Tequila  is a spirit made from the blue agave plant, 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.Tequila is a clear white liquor distilled from the juice of the blue agave plants grown in Mexico. The juices are extracted from the heart of the plant (agave azu tequilana weber) and are distilled twice.

Different kinds of tequila are produced in 50 registered companies in Jalisco.
The tequila products made by these companies differ mainly in proportions of agave used,  production processes , microorganisms used in the fermentation, distillation equipment used and the maturation and aging times.
