Mexico/Jalisco: Tequila – Museum of Tequila

Like Cognac or Champagne in France or Kentucky/Tennessee in the USA – this is the origin of one of the most iconic alcoholic beverages in the world – tequila – named after the town itself. A good idea to start your exploration here is with the Museum of Tequila in the heart of the town. Surprisingly, it’s a relatively small museum displaying some of the history of the region, the production process, the various brands and bottles over the years and some very unique contemporary painting and art. Enough to get you excited before visiting the actual tequila casas (distilleries).
