"North America's first indigenous distilled spirit" ... I would have thought that was Whisky... I always associate Tequila with South America

I do believe Agave only grows in Mexico. Whisky was made here early, but it isn't indigenous.

I took the indigenous to mean the type of Whisky... Things like Jack Daniels and Jim Bean (sour mash?) are very north American ... I don't think you get anything like that in Scotland (I've not come across anything - and that's not for lack of trying!) :)

Yep, corn whisk(e)y and rye whisky are from north america, but that's splitting the hair a little fine, no? ;-)

I'm nothing if not a pedant.

And now I make myself look like an uneducated arse... does this mean Mexico is in North America?

It does, I'm afraid. Most of central America is too. And Greenland.

You're afraid that I look like an uneducated arse... or that Mexico is part of North America? ;)

I'm not going to get into mudslinging about geographic knowledge. I've seen the results that the Americans generate.
