Bottling Agavales

Bottles are washed with water (even tequila!) and drained, then filled with tequila. Although labor intensive, Agavales tequila is filled and inspected by hand. Once filled and the stopper is in place along with labeling, bottles are then inspected again for flaws or impurities. In Mexico, tequila is assigned an Appellation of Origin status, which limits production to five Mexican states: Guanajuato, Jalisco, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas. The state of Jalisco is the center of Tequila production in Mexico. It is the only Mexican state that has the status of Appellation of Origin. Jalisco is considered the origin of tequila and where the standards are established. The other states are only permitted to grow Blue Agave in small and defined regions. All 100% agave tequilas must be bottled in the designated Mexican regions and must bear on their labels “Hecho en Mexico / Made in Mexico.”
