Mexico is known for its delicious drinks and food but what also comes to mind are Tequila and Mezcal. Tequila comes from the state of Jalisco, where the coveted Blue Agave cactus plant is grown for 7-10 years before it can be used to make Tequila in its many presentations: Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo. Mezcal is very similar except it comes from the state of Oaxaca, is made with a variety of agave plants, and often has a smokier flavor.

MOUTH BLOWN MEXICAN GLASSWARE
This glassware is crafted in Mexico by master glassblowers and made from 100% recycled Coke bottles. The bottles are washed and broken into pieces, which are then heated to a molten liquid and artfully spun, blown, and shaped into the beautiful glassware you see before you. Each glass measures: 3.9″ H x 3.1″ Diam. Capacity: 11 oz. Free of toxins. This hand-blown glass may vary in color, size, and shape. Hand wash recommended.
Talavera pottery is a form of Majolica pottery that came to Mexico by way of Spain and Northern Africa. The Moors introduced the geometric patterns to Spain during the 12th century and it was quickly adopted by craftsmen in Talavera de Reina in Castile, Spain who brought it to Mexico under the Spanish crown. The process of covering the base in white is the reason it’s called Majolica pottery (tin-glazed earthenware), and allows the colors to really stand out. These Talavera tile coasters are all made by hand. Modern screen printing allows the painters to make them accurate and consistent.
*The color of the Talavera Tile Coasters set will vary per order*

BLUE GREEN ORGANIC AGAVE
Agave is an all-natural sweetener that mixologist prefer when making Mexican cocktails. When the agave plant has grown to 7-10 years old, the leaves are cut off, revealing the core of the plant (called the “pina”). When harvested, the pina resembles a giant pineapple and can weigh in at 50 to 150 pounds. To make the agave nectar, sap is extracted from the pina, filtered, and heated at a low temperature, which breaks down the carbohydrates into sugars. Use it to sweeten anything you’d normally put sugar in. (16 oz. bottle)
