Tequila Fun Facts:

The purchase of the Herradura Tequila Company was made by Brown-Forman in 2006 for $776 Million Dollars! Whoever said Tequila was cheap was wrong!

In 2008, Mexican scientists discovered a way of vaporizing tequila in order to make diamonds. Although they are too small for use in jewelry these diamonds can be used for commercial and industrial use! Go tequila!
                                                                                          -Popular Science Magazine

Shots of tequila are often drunk in Tequilerias side by side with Sangrita, a sweet, sour and spicy drink made of orange juice, and chilies. Ask for some here at
the restaurant!

A 1 litre bottle of limited edition premium Tequila was sold for $225,000 USD in 2006,
becoming the most expensive bottle of spirit sold in the world. Incidentally, the bottle was made of 2 kilos of Platinum and Gold!
