Drink up while you can! A Tequila Shortage is coming [watch]

Brace yourselves: we could be facing a tequila shortage. A shortage in the heartland of tequila country and growing demand from around the world has producers worried. The price of tequilana, has shot up over the past two years.

Here’s why: Without enough mature plants to make tequila, some farmers are using immature plants instead to compensate. It takes seven or eight years for the plants to reach maturity and younger plants produce less tequila, so more plants have to be used and it creates a downward spiral.

Industry experts warn that the early harvesting will result in a worse shortage in 2018 and will probably continue until 2021. So stock up now.
