The exclusive selection of the best known Mexican drink and which has a place of honor among the main international cocktails. From Jalisco to the world.
Imagine for a moment in a Cantina in Jalisco. With ranchera music in the background, between tacos and tasty regional food, what would you ask to drink? Located in a state northwest of Mexico City, this is where the Mexican essence is revealed with the most famous liquor that the Aztec country has given the world: tequila. This famous alcoholic beverage is the fascinating product of two different cultures. For centuries, the inhabitants of pre-Hispanic Mexico used to drink the fermented juice of the agave for religious and healing purposes. It was with the arrival of the Spanish people that the fermented juice was distilled. This was how tequila was born in the eighteenth century, extracted from the blue agave, which although it is made in other Mexican states, is in Jalisco where it picks up its enormous popularity.
