Throughout history, people have been making alcoholic beverages which are synonymous to their local areas and their local ingredients. Beer, which is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages produced (“brewed”) by humans, dates clear back to the 5th millennium in Iran and later written in history by ancient Egyptians, who help spread the word throughout the world. Vodka, with its naming coming from the Russian word ‘voda’ for ‘water’ or as the Poles would say ‘woda’, was first documented as being produced in the 9th century. Rum wasn’t invented until the 17th century using local Caribbean Island molasses or sugarcane juice, whereby it still today is being fermented and distilled and then aged in oak barrels. Gin, also first produced in the 17th century, in Holland, derives its predominant flavor from local juniper berries. And, what could conjure up images of Mexico better than Tequila (a type of mezcal) and those distinctive looking blue agave plants.
