As we know, Tequila needs to be made in around the city of Tequila and parts of Jalisco.
Otherwise it is just mezcal and cannot be called Tequila.
I've recently been wondering about Tequila that is fermented and distilled in the parts of Mexico it can be, but finished elsewhere.
For example aging with oak, spicing, etc, and yet still legally be allowed to be called Tequila.
I cannot find any legal information out there regarding this.
Came across this company today: Sherry 7 CS @ Storywood Tequila
Looks like they are importing Tequila and then finishing it in sherry casks.
Anyone know the legal specifics here?
Is it OK for us to finish Tequila in different barrels and still legally call it Tequila?
If we get the legal aspect wrong, and we list it on Amazon (for example), the listing will be pulled.
Must be 100% legal.
