Tequila Regulatory Council
According to Mexican laws and regulations, tequila is a distilled spirit that may only be produced in Mexico.
The Tequila Regulatory Council (AKA: Consejo Regulador del Tequila) was created in 1993. It is a nonprofit organization that consists of the Mexican government, bottling plants, distributors, tequila producers and blue agave growers. The purpose of the CRT is to ensure the integrity and authenticity of tequila to customers.
The CRT works closely with the Mexican government to make sure that when a customer purchases tequila, that they are indeed receiving the real thing.
