Tequila is a Blue Agave-based spirit made primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, Mexico. Tequila is most often made at 80 proof, but can be produced between 70-110 proof. Most distillers will distill to 100 proof and then cut it down with water to reduce its harshness. The most respected brands distill the tequila right to 80 proof.
