Did You Know?

Guadalajara is a metropolis in western Mexico and the capital of the state of Jalisco. The city is considered to be the birthplace of Tequila. The name ‘Tequila’ comes from the Tequili Indians and the Tequila volcano that towers over the vast acres of Agave Azul fields in this area.

By Mexi­can law, only mezcals made in the officially sanctioned region around Gua­dalajara can be called tequila, just as the name cognac guarantees that that liquor comes only from a specific area of France.
