Keeping Tequila Free: Mexico and U.S. Reach (All Important) Tequila Agreement
To the relief of margarita drinkers all over the U.S., the United States and Mexico signed an agreement Tuesday that will allow continued bulk shipments of tequila from Mexico into the United States. Since 2003, Mexico has been threatening to require all tequila from Mexico to be bottled in Mexico, thus threatening U.S. bottling company jobs (and that ever important supply of cheap tequila). The agreement (summarized here) seems to be a complete surrender by Mexico, which has completely given up its tequila plan. Maybe the Spanish version is different?
