Tequila has been a most loved drink for centuries. It is made from the distillation of juice from the blue agave plant. Pure tequila is made of 100% blue agave, whereas Mixito tequila is mixed with sugar or molasses before fermentation.
Margarita is the basic template of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice, which calls for simplicity. It is always open to suggestions and has played the role of the foundation for many complex concoctions.
It all started when Don Julio Gonzalez was just 10 years old. Working in his uncle’s tequila distillery. He was full of passion and saw a unique opportunity in the production of tequila. However, at such a young age he had no money.
Tequila first came into existence in 250-300 A.D. when the Aztec Indians produced a fermented juice of the agave for their ceremonial wine, 'plaque'. This liquid was very important to Aztec culture as they worshipped two Gods.
