According to the institution, this brand presents the symbol of the National Association of Agave Derivatives (ANIDA), which is misleading for those who consume it, since it is actually a cane liquor.

The liqueur has a faint caramel color and comes in a 250 ml plastic bottle. Its fermented smell is a characteristic it shares with other inexpensive beverages. This liquor is very popular in Mexico, especially among young people and low-income people, because its price is around USD 1.30.
The Tonayán was created in Jalisco, a state in western Mexico famous for its tequilas. It is distributed by Grupo Corona, founded by Armando Corona Robles, which manages 20 liquor brands in total.
In the 2011 National Addiction Survey, the last one that asked what was their favorite alcoholic beverage, young people between 12 and 17 years old placed it in second place, only behind beer.
