Mexican-made kosher tequila

Can't Post | Private Reply
NEW YORK (AP) A New York businessman is launching a new kosher tequila in time for Cinco de Mayo. Martin Silver says Agave 99 will be on the market in time for the holiday that celebrates Mexico's defeat of French forces on May 5, 1862. Silver, president of Long Island-based Star Industries, says he wants to satisfy the craze for high-end tequila with one that observant Jews can drink.
Silver says a half million cases of the 99-proof kosher tequila are being produced at a Mexican plant using methods certified by a rabbi. It will retail for $41.95 a bottle.
The product launch with Mexican songs sung in both Yiddish and Spanish is set for May 5, but it will also be sold earlier for Passover, which starts at sundown on April 8 this year.

That's a pretty stiff price. Do you have any idea what makes tequila kosher or not?

How does he find these sites??!? Quite amazing.
But, reading their "Tequilla" (spelling theirs) section leaves me wondering about the scientist's practical knowledge. Doesn't jive with what I know about the magical elixir. Mexico is quite adamant about the 100% agave rating and their definitions of the types are not correct.

My friend Sr. Google tells me many things. You just have to know how to phrase the question -- and plow through acres of junk.
