#TequilaChat on Tequila Tuesday

TequilaChat, #tequilachat, tequila aficionadoOn Tuesday, November 18th, we hosted our first Tequila Tuesday #TequilaChat on Twitter with Trianon Tequila.  Turnout was great and the conversation was even better!  Attendees had some great questions for Scotty Mattos and the folks at Trianon and we all learned a little more about this great “old school” tequila brand.

Pinpointing your treasure bottles or favorite distilleries has never been easier! Please understand that this list is not a comprehensive list of every tequila brand ever made.

What is a NOM List?

The Norma Oficial Mexicana (Official Mexican Standard), abbreviated NOM, is the name of each of a series of official, compulsory standards and regulations for diverse activities in Mexico. They are more commonly referred to as NOMs or normas.

The standards are prepared by the Dirección General de Normas (DGN) (General Directorate of Standards), which is the body representing Mexico in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

In the case of tequila, Mexico’s Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT) regulates production NOMs. The NOM identifier means the tequila meets government standards – but this is not any guarantee of tequila’s quality. However, without the NOM stamp of legitimacy, it is not guaranteed that the bottle contains tequila.

All 100% agave tequilas must have a NOM identifier on the bottle. The important laws since 1990 were NOM-006-SCFI-1993 and the later update NOM-006-SCFI-1994 revised in late 2005 NOM-006-SCFI-2005 and the most recent revision in 2012 NOM-006-SCFI-2012.

The number after NOM is the distillery number, assigned by the government. NOM does not indicate the location of the distillery, merely the parent company or – in the case where a company leases space in a plant – the physical plant where the tequila was manufactured. (Source: Wikipedia)
