Tequila Tizoc History
Maria Sabina, the Mexica healer, the "shaman", introduced to the world the ritual known as "the velada", a healing and purifying ceremony through the interaction with “angels” and use of hallucinogenic mushrooms.
It is rumored that several cultural and social celebrities of the recent century such as "Che" Guevara, Bob Dylan and John Lennon among others, visited Maria in her native Sierra Mazatecan in search of the purification of their souls.
In the mid 1950's, Pedro Infante delivered to Maria as an offering, a bottle of Tequila Tizoc. As the legend goes, since then and even after her death Maria has been seen imbibing this exquisite spirit.
