The small town of Amatitán, lying in the valley below the long-extinct volcanic Tequila Mountain, is considered by many to be the birthplace of tequila, based on an archaeological discovery in 2008 on El Caballito Cerrero ranch. This revealed an open-air tequila ‘factory’ with ovens and the oldest known tahona (millstone) dating back to the first third of the 16th century. Amatitán is also the home of Casa Herradura, the origins of which date back to 1800, when José Feliciano de la Trinidad Romo Escobedo purchased La Concordia ranch in Amatitán after being ordained as the local Roman Catholic Priest. The ranch included the mescal factory, which he kept in production – no doubt for ‘spiritual’ reasons.
