Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico

The name of the pueblo tells you what's being manufactured here: tequila. The blue agave grows in the rich volcanic soils of Jalisco. When harvested, the piñas become the source of the sap that is distilled and bottled in factories like this. Tequila is a protected designation of origin (PDO) product which comes only from the area around the city of Tequila. [2007]
