In order to receive the "Appellation of Origin" certification from the Mexican government, tequila must be produced in one of the following five Mexican states: Jalisco, Michoacan, Tamaulipas, Guanajuato and Nayarit. These states encompass areas of highlands and lowlands. Where the agave is grown has significant impact on the profile of each batch of tequila that is produced.

Tequilas produced in the lowlands are made with smaller agave plants, resulting in a dry and more aggressive tequila. Many generations of Agave have been grown in the lowland regions and most of the most well known Tequilas are from the lowlands. (ie; Cuervo, Herradura, Sauza, and 1800).
