No less striking is perhaps the case of Mexicans , that plant expected at least get one of the fastest growing beverage business in recent decades . Know more tequila : its history and manufacture.
Mexico agave tequila is a distillate from the municipality of Tequila in the state of Jalisco , Mexico . It is made from fermented and distilled like mezcal , agave juice extracted , in particular the so-called blue agave . It is perhaps the most popular drink and representative of Mexico in the world.

Mexicola story tequila Tequila unknown history . Tequila is from Jalisco , according to serious researchers . No municipality can claim to be the " origin of tequila " . Mezcal - Wine is now known as tequila was already produced in the Province of Avalos (now Ciudad Guzman ) since 1616 , as stated in a document from the file of the Archdiocese of Guadalajara.

In ancient Mexico , the cooked agave was just a sweet food . The only pre-Hispanic drink pulque agave was that at some time after the Conquest was the basis for some Spanish entrepreneurs to prepare a distillate called " rabbit blood ."
Its development . The most important unit operations that occur in the process of making Tequila , are:
Jima is separated from the leaves of agave pineapple when it has reached the proper development.
Hydrolysis: The hydrolysis is required for simple sugars (mainly fructose) . For this, it is mainly used a thermal process . At this stage there are many compounds that determine the profile of the final product .
tequila como se hace MexicoExtraction : the sugars contained in the cones of agave must be separated from the fiber, this extraction is commonly performed with a combination of wrenching and a train of rolling mills . Currently , it is common to use diffusers that make the operation efficient .
According to the Official Mexican Standard for Tequila , tequila maker can produce two categories of Tequila , which are 100 % Agave Tequila and Tequila respectively ( up to 49 % with other sugars ) .
Fermentation: in this stage , the sugars present in the must are transformed by the action of yeast , into ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide .
Distillation: After the fermentation phase , it is necessary to musts distillation process of separating the constituents of the wort.
The product obtained from the first cycle is commonly known as ordinary , this product is subjected to a second cycle or correction finally getting Tequila.
