One of my favorite places at Epcot is La Cava del Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion. Not only does it provides an escape of the crowds but it’s a place where you can learn a lot about tequila, mezcal and more. The tequila bar celebrates the heritage and tradition of tequila-making in Mexico!

Even the beautiful murals around La Cava show the story of how tequila is made!

Since National Tequila Day is on July 24th, Hilda Castillo, one of the tequila ambassador at La Cava del Tequila, wants to share information about Mexico’s popular distilled beverage that originated in the city of Tequila, Mexico.

Tequila is made from the blue agave plant while the mezcal is made from any type of agave plants and at La Cava there are over 200 tequila and mezcal brands. If Hilda is not at La Cava during your visit, the bar has tequila “connoisseurs” that will give you all educate on the rich tradition and heritage of tequila-making and all of the information you need to experience the best tequilas and mezcals from Mexico, along with specialty margaritas and Mexican appetizers.
