The 31 Teqqual Tequila fabrica is located in Amatitan, Mexico, the birthplace of the world’s renowned Tequilas. Amatitán means “small forest of amates”.The first settlers were indigenous nahuatlacas, who settled in the hills of the disputed chiquihuitillo and their domains with other indigenous groups, according to legend, these indians had a god named titan, to which the indians told the spaniards that they could not call another god and expressing “indio loves (“ama” in spanish) titan “, so the place acquired the name Amatitan. With a population of more than 20,000 residents Amatitan is located 35 km (22 miles) north of Mexico’s second-largest city, Guadalajara, it is the administrative center for the “Municipio de Amatitan” which also includes the surrounding communities of Santiaguito, villa de Cuerambaro, Chome, la Mata, la Conchilla, el Amarillo, Agua Friar, Santa Rosa and several other smaller settlements.
The economy relies heavily in the production of Tequila; its agriculture is dominated by the cultivation of the agave plant, which is used to produce the Tequila. The climate in Amatitan is hot and dry which suits well the agave plant. There is usually one rainy period during the year that lasts from June thru September, it is this time when most of the residents grow their other dominant crop, corn. Some residents also raise cattle and other livestock, mainly for regional consumption, the lifestyle of its inhabitants is mostly of a rural nature and the residents are mostly catholic.
Recent findings on the ranch el caballito cerrero a factory under the open sky, surrounded by
fermentation vats, furnaces and mills where it is produced mezcal, have confirmed that Amatitan is
the birthplace of Tequila, according to the study by historian and owner of the property Claudio Jimenez, Vizcarra.
