Tequila production continues to rise

According to statistics from the Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT), the total production of tequila in Mexico went from 211.4 million liters in the period of January-November 2013 to 254.2 million liters in the same period of 2017. Also, between January and November of 2017 Mexico exported 199.1 million liters of tequila, while in the January-November 2013 period the total exports of the beverage amounted to 161.2 million liters.

Among the different varieties of the national beverage, the 100% blue agave variety registered the highest growth of production, going from 90.6 million liters in 2013 to 141.1 million liters in 2017. It also registered the highest growth of exports: 58.9 million in 2013 to 95.3 million in 2017.

Agave tequilana, commonly called blue agave (agave azul) or tequila agave, is an agave plant that is an important economic product of Jalisco, Mexico, due to its role as the base ingredient of tequila. The best tequila varieties are made with 100% of blue agave and the CRT report affirms that international markets prefer that variety as it is the highest quality of tequila that can be produced.
