MEXICO: Premium sales drive H1 Tequila exports up 16% - report
Mexico's Tequila exports jumped 16% to US$568m in the first half of this year, local media has reported.
Sales were driven by premium 100% agave Tequila exports to China, Russia and the US, according to press agency EFE citing figures from Mexico's agriculture department yesterday. In 2013, Mexico reportedly exported 149.1m litres of Tequila worth $996.9m.
In June, the Scotch Whisky Association said it was to sign a "co-operation agreement" with Mexico's Tequila Regulatory Council to boost protection of both spirits globally and encourage fair competition.
Last year, China agreed to lift a ban on imports of high-alcohol Tequila.
