Encounter of Two Worlds

Tequila is the result of the encounter of two worlds. This are México and Spain, as it involves the agaves from Mexico and the distillation techniques from the European Continent.

When the Spaniards came to Mexico, they saw the natives drinking the fermented juices from the Agave and decided to bring their distillation techniques to ‘purify’ it and get a stronger spirit known as mezcal wine or ‘aguardiente’. They promoted the agave production and were the ones who laid the foundations for its elaboration.
