Why You Should Go
Agave landscape and tequila distilleries
- The agave landscape was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2006.
- The area is comprised of 85,642 acres.
- Agave growing is part of the national identity. Blue agave has been used since the 16th century and goes as far back as approximately two thousand years ago when it was used to produce fermented beverages.
- Nowhere in the world will you find a process or a product that compares.
- There are distilleries dating back to the 18th century (Cuervo) and others—large and small—that were more recently founded, totally equipped or using manual processes.
At the Very Least
Photograph the agave landscape and its emblematic spirit.
- Checking out at least two tequila factories with tastings.
