EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

Agave dates back to the Aztec civilization as an important crop in Mexico. Since the 1600s, the people of western Mexico have cultivated blue agave from the red volcanic soil that blankets the region, to make what we know as tequila.The Spirit of Tequila celebrates the tradition, culture, and myth of this iconic drink. Joel Salcido traveled across Jalisco and neighboring Mexican states, capturing images of distilleries and artisanal tequileras, including blue agave fields at sunset, the agave's pineapple-like centers (pinas), elegantly shadowed barrel rooms (anejos), and, of course, the agave farmers themselves.

Nearly forty photographs, taken with a medium format camera - some in full-color, some in duotone - reveal not only the tequila making process but also the region's traditions of culture and religion. Haunting and beautiful, a church spire is juxtaposed with a firework celebration in honor of the Virgen de Guadalupe. A Mexican charro rides through the streets of Arandas. Near Atotonilco, a horse pulls a traditional plow through the fields to irrigate. Exploring the rooms and techniques hidden in the distilleries of legendary tequilas Herradura, Sauza, Jose Cuervo, Don Julio, and others,The Spirit of Tequila celebrates a craft that is rooted deep in the culture of Mexico.
