WEIRD FACTS ABOUT
TEQUILA

TEQUILA

The drink Tequila is named after the Mexican town of Tequila.

In 1999, a company in Mexico was fined around $27,500 and told to withdraw a drink they had called 'Tequila Cabron' from supermarket shelves after officials at the Federal Consumer Protection Agency had ruled that the word 'cabron' was too profane for the country's national drink.
"Cabron" means "male goat" in Spanish but when used in anger in Mexico, the nearest English equivalent would be "bastard". Between friends, however, it is used to mean a boss or figure in authority.
