How was Tequila born?
Since the first decades of the colony, the Tequila was born from the richness of two cultures: its prehispanic heritage from the Agave plant that was already being used to obtain fermented drinks, and its other heritage. Arabic and Hispanic, was the distillation process in the stills, that had been recently introduced to the continent.
The origins of the word Tequila?

Its name comes from the Jalisco valleys where this popular Mexican drink has been produced for many centuries. Its origin remotes to the native Nahuatl dialect:

Tequitl: a job or profession.

Tlan: a place to work in the fields.
