The only way to make tequila from home is if you have all of the materials necessary, however it is difficult to make from home as the plant required to boil down takes an extremely long time to boil, and a means of distilling the mixture is necessary. Although this is the case, tequila is actually made from a plant called blue agave. The agave is actually distilled and fermented. Tequila is actually also aged for a long period of time. The longer the drink is aged, the better it tastes.
