Heaven, Earth, Tequila

Un Viaje Al Corazón de México

HEAVEN, EARTH, TEQUILA: Un Viaje al Corazón de México features the work of award-winning photographer Douglas Menuez, who over the past four years has created a stunning body of images that explore the cultural side of tequila and of México itself. This photographic journey of discovery began when Menuez and his Mexican-born friend Andrés Zamudio traveled to the little-known town of Tequila to document the ancient techniques for making tequila.

They thought they knew México, but came to reach a much deeper understanding of the extremely complex history and mestizo culture of the Mexican people. The book reveals the ongoing Aztec traditions from which tequila was born, from the history of the agave plant to how its most famous product became a symbol of Mexico, and in doing so, offers the reader a unique glimpse into the soul of this fascinating country.
