Tequila, Mexico

The 34,658 ha site, between the foothills of the Tequila Volcano and the deep valley of the Rio Grande River, is part of an extensive landscape of blue agave, shaped by the culture of the plant used since the 16th century to produce teula spirit and for at least 2,000 years to make fermented drinks and cloth. Within the landscape are working destilleries reflecting the growth in the international consumption of tequila in the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the agave culture is seen as part of national identity. The area encloses a living, working landscape of blue agave fields and the urban settlements of Tuila, Arenal and Amatitan. UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2006. I really like tequila, btw. :)
Thank you so much Irma!
