Mexican authorities trash fake tequilas

From the Guadalajara (Mexico) Reporter

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Authorities destroyed almost 25,000 containers (86,000 liters) of fake tequila last week after an operation in which Consumer Protection Agency officials traveled the Ruta del Tequila, snatching up adulterated firewater in the towns of Tequila, Amatitan, Magdelena, Teuchitlan and Arenal.

Included in the haul were liquors, cream liquors, mezcals and other beverages labled “tequila” without the proper authorization. More odious were watered down or under volume products.

Tequila distillery owners helped authorities light the blaze that destroyed the productos piratas.
