It gave its name to the destiled spirit you know,now come travel trough
La Ruta Del Tequila., A truly unique Mexican experience.
This web page is devoted to the TOWN of TEQUILA, located in
Jalisco, México. You will not find our web page or books devoted
exclusively to the tours of distilleries. Sure they are an important
part of the history of Tequila, but where is it written about the
town of 35,000 people? We have written two separate books which are
in the market place today, one in English and another in Spanish and
are titled ‘Tequila the Town of Endearment’. To write these books we
took a lot of pictures, 15,000 are in our computers. The research
took over three years and we must have walked a jillion miles. We
have been to nearly all distilleries, one twelve times, many are so
immense you need to keep going back.
We have google the Town of Tequila on the computer and found over 7.3 million links. We have broken that down to specific items, reviewed too many articles, web pages, etc. and found very, very few alike, example; How to make a Margarita, 1.6 Million links. So, all that being said, mix anything with tequila and be happy. We hope y’all enjoy our web and if we can do anything for you, contact us., The plan is to provide new pictures and stories every month and eventually display a monthly calendar. ‘Roberto’
