Many people know of the beverage, but few have visited the majestic volcano nestled between the blue agave fields  that originally gave Tequila its name. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the vast area known as Tequila displays gorgeous scenery paired with traditional distilleries and old factories. The remains of the imperial Teuchitlán culture that once paid homage to the region's integral resources is just a few miles away, while their customs and traditions are still present within the Tequila community.

Tequila is a historically rich area, where increased consumption of the beverage initiated efforts to preserve this rare landscape and its distinct people. The agave plant has been used for more than 2,000 years to create fermented drinks, rich textiles, and more recently, the popular beverage the region is known for. Today, Tequila's streets encompass a dynamic national identity dependent on the agave plant for part of its history and culture.
