Tequila ranks first among the products most consumed by foreigners during their visit to the country, being one of the main purchases for 57 percent of international visitors that travel to Mexico, according to the National Chamber of Industry Tequila.
Notimex reports figures from the Tequila Regulatory Council reveal that being one of the products with the largest number of exports worldwide, the tequila industry has positioned this beverage as a delicacy for visitors in our country, consumed by more than 33 thousand 890 international tourists during their stay in the areas of agave cultivation.
Characteristic for its taste and smell of agave, UNESCO declared it as a regional heritage due to the importance that tourists give to it as a symbol of Mexican tradition.
Among the main tequila destinations that stand out by the Ministry of Tourism are Jalisco, Nayarit, Guanajuato, Michoacán and Tamaulipas; which have increased their visits by 49 percent this year.
In this context, Almundo.com country manager Sylvia Esquivel says that when tourists want to visit tequila destinations, more than 45 percent of visitors are always looking for packages or promotions that include their consumption.
“We are very proud that foreign tourists visit our country and more than tequila is one of the factors that are most interested to know. Jalisco is without a doubt one of the most requested states, it is for them that we offer them in our multichannel tours, hotels and tours that make a unique experience when trying this delicacy,” she added.
In a statement from the online travel agency, highlighted data from the National Chamber of Commerce, which put the production of 2017 in 900 thousand tons per year, where about 300 thousand people work in the elaboration of this drink.
