4 Copas Tequila is said to be the world’s first organic tequila. The drink was certified by the international organization Bioagricert. The organic certification was announced at a gathering at the La Quemada distillery where 4 Copas is made, in Jalisco, Mexico. Named the Tequila of the Year 2006 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, the organic elixir is breaking into new markets throughout the USA. The company says: “We cultivate and supervise our own plantations, as well as the fields resulting from our partnerships with other agave producers, to assure the handling of organic raw materials, that is, free of pesticides and chemical manures.”
