On Sunday, July 24, the United States celebrates National Tequila Day. You can’t blame anyone for wanting to take one or two bracing shots after the year we’ve had so far (responsibly, of course).

Here are six interesting tequila-related facts you probably didn’t know in honor of the holiday.

IT IS FROM A PLANT, SO IT MUST BE HEALTHY, AM I RIGHT?

Do not be alarmed, gluten-free people! You’re totally fine to consume tequila. The juice of the blue agave plant, whose center is known as pia because it resembles a pineapple in some ways, is fermented to create tequila.

After being picked, the pia is sent to a distillery where it is roasted to release its juices, which are then fermented, distilled, and aged before being packaged.

Tequila makes a margarita joyful, but it’s important to remember that not all mezcal is tequila. The only restriction on the specific combination of materials is your creativity.

Okay, let’s simplify it because it’s a little confusing. Agave is used to make both mezcal and tequila, although tequila can only be produced from the blue agave plant. Food andamp; Wine claims that more than 30 different agave species can be used to create mezcal. The flavor characteristics may alter slightly, with mezcal having a smokier flavor.

A CERTAIN AREA OF MEXICO MUST BE USED TO MAKE TEQUILA.

You are aware of the requirements for making Champagne in the Champagne region of France? It is a AAA2. Tequila must be produced in the state of Jalisco or one of its adjacent states in order to bear the name. But Jalisco is where most tequila is produced.

The city is in Jalisco, yeah. It is the origin of the well-known beverage; before it became a commonplace, native Mexicans would ferment the blue agave juice there. The village, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2006, still has many distilleries.

Women may have prevented tequila from ever being.

The blue agave plants, known as hijuelos, were traditionally grown by the ladies of Tequila (as in the town) (little children). From February to July, when the plants grow, women can still be seen working the fields.
