Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Through a series of remarkable images and sometimes overly romantic observations, award-winning photographer Menuez reveals the labor and love inherent in Tequila production, from harvesting and processing blue agave to distilling the liquor that here takes on a near mythic stature. Menuez spends a significant amount of time in Jalisco state, near the town of Tequila, where he and a friend visit agave fields, tequila distilleries and a bar where bull fighters hang out. Along the way, Menuez rediscovers the beauty of Mexico, a place he had visited but never truly known, "an enduring, ancient place, where 500 years after the European conquest, the spirit, pride, and passion of the people continue undiminished." His photographs are stunning: agave harvesters, for instance, silhouetted against a golden sky; haunting: men engaged in back-breaking (and for readers, eye-opening) work in the distilleries; celebratory: men and women drinking, laughing and dancing. The spare text, which includes an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-nominated novelist Victor Villasenor (Burro Genius) and a tequila guide by Ian Chadwick, wavers between truncated observation and sentimental yearnings, but this book's greatest-and most plentiful-rewards are its photos. 70 b&w and color photos.

Menuez combines beautiful photographs and informative text to paint a picture both of a region and an industry. From the darkly provocative picture on the cover (of naked men working in pits of agave pressings) to those of the people and landscape of the region, he creates a sense of Jalisco (the province where all tequila is produced) that draws the reader in. For those who know only that tequila is what goes in a margarita, the text enlightens the reader regarding the complexities of tequila and the culture that surrounds it.

This book lived up to its billing as beautiful and informative. Visitors and friends are drawn to it. With the skyrocketing price of tequila and mezcal it's good to have a quality publication dealing with the history and culture. A good insight to a part of Mexican culture.
