Salud to National Tequila Day

See also

National Tequila Day is a perfect excuse to toast to the delicious liquor that is growing in popularity. With more than 45 million tequila drinkers, the U.S. consumes twice as much tequila as the liquid’s country of origin, Mexico. Some drinkers enjoy tequila without a mixer while others crave the tartness of a margarita. No matter the type of cocktail, a quality tequila is key to enjoying the beverage. On July 24, a tequila beverage is a perfect way to salud the holiday.

Casa Sauza is a great example of a distillery that is leading the category and is the force behind brands like Sauza Tequila, Sauza 901 and Hornitos. The world's number two premium tequila and margarita's favorite tequila has a long, storied history.

Some fun facts about the Casa Sauza heritage include:

  • Casa Sauza produces all its tequila in the same location it’s been using since 1873.
  • Agave plants at Casa Sauza are still harvested by hand by Jimadores. There is no school for Jimadores; it’s a skill that gets passed down from generation to generation.
  • Casa Sauza is one of the only major tequila producers to use agave in its raw form – pressing the piñas and then cooking the juice instead of cooking the entire piña.

In honor of National Tequila Day, Sauza Tequila is sharing some twists on the classic margarita. Raise your glass and toast the celebration.
