While we on the subject of tequila, here are some fun facts about the Mexican distilled beverage from The Encyclopedia of Trivia
After the Spaniards introduced distillation to Mexico in the 16th century, the Mexicans developed tequila, which is distilled from the agave plant.
The beverage is named after the town of Tequila near Guadalajara, where it is produced.
Tequila is made of blue agave Jalisco which is produced in select states in Mexico, including: Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas.
Without bats there would be no tequila. The agave plant is pollinated by bats.
It takes at least eight years for the Blue Agave plant to mature enough to be used to make tequila.
Tequila contains about 40% alcohol.
