Tequila is made by removing the heart of the plant in its 7th to 14th year. Harvested hearts usually weigh 80-200 pounds. The heart is stripped of its leaves and heated to convert the inulin to sugars in it. The roasted core is pressed, or crushed, in order to release the liquid called aguamiel, which is fermented and distilled into alcohol.
