Still Spirits Flavouring and Essences


Tequila is a distilled liqueur made from the blue agave plant, grown mainly in the surrounding area of Tequila near Guadalajara, Mexico.


The rich volcanic soils in the region of Tequila are especially suited for growing blue agave, and more than 300 million plants are harvested there each year.

The agave plant grows differently depending on the region where it is grown. 

Blue agave is more significant and sweeter in taste and aroma if grown in the highlands Los Altos region. 

Agaves harvested in the valley region have subtle herbaceous flavour and fragrance.

Due to its cultural and historical significance, the region of Tequila has declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site during 2006.
