The Mexican government granted Bacanora with a Denomination Of Origin in December 2005. According to the rules outlined in the NOM, only agave Angustifolia Haw (also known as agave Pacifica) can be used to produce Bacanora. In 2006, the Bacanora Regulatory Council was created in the state of Sonora to regulate, standardize, and commercialize the industry. Currently, there are thirty-six municipalities within the state of Sonora where the agave Angustifolia Haw must be grown, harvested, and distilled in order to be considered a Bacanora.
