China Is Ready To Outpace The U.S. In Tequila Consumption


Whether it’s birthdays or Fridays, tequila is the perfect drink for all occasions.

So it should come as no surprise that a drink as well-liked as is quickly becoming one of China’s most favorite liquors, and in fact their rapid consumption of the booze is on pace to rival that of the U.S. by 2020. This comes after China’s recent relaxation of its import laws involving tequila. This turn of events came as an act of diplomacy between the Chinese President Xi Jinping and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. These days, tequila is pretty much everywhere in China, but before the deal was signed by both presidents, tequila was hard to find.

Because of the high levels of methanol in Tequila, the drink wasn’t able to get past China’s custom’s laws. While small amounts were available in the country, it was only available to a privileged few, and it probably wasn’t even real tequila?. Officially, authentic tequila can only be manufactured in the small region of Mexico named, oddly enough, Tequila. Thanks to efforts of the presidents, people in China can now drink the stuff whenever the urge hits them. While China might one day become the biggest consumer of tequila, I’ll be doing my part to keep the U.S. in that race for first place.
