Have you always wondered how to make tequila? You are going to learn the process of making tequila in just a few simple steps. It is illegal to produce tequila outside of Mexico. Tequila is imported all over the world from its country of origin. Tequila is produced from the juice of the blue agave plant, which is grown in Mexico and resembles a cactus. When learning how to make tequila, keep in mind that the plants can take up to ten years or longer to mature fully.
- When blue agave trees are finally mature, they are stripped of their leaves. The remaining core of the plant, called "pina," is used to make the tequila.
- The pinas are cut and then roasted in the distillery.
- After roasting, the pinas are put into a press and shredded. This process squeezes out the juice from the pinas, and this juice is placed in fermentation tanks.
- The next step is adding yeast to the roasted pulp juice. The mixture begins turning into alcohol.
- The alcohol mixture is allowed to sit for up to two days.
- The fermented juice then gets distilled multiple times in stainless steel stills. The tequila is then ready.
