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.

  • One of our favorite cooling off spots!!

  • The word “tequila”, though it ends in an “-a” is in fact a masculine word, therefore can only be used with the masculine “el” as in “el tequila”.
    The only way it can ever be paired with “la” is if you are referring to the tequila bottle, not specifically the drink as in “la botella de tequila”.
    That being said, “La Cava del Tequila” uses “la” referring to the word “cava” (not tequila) which is femenine. “Del” is a contraction of “de” and “el” which is used to shorten “La Cava de el Tequila”.

  • Actually, P Ryan, tequila is used both as “el tequila” and “la tequila” so they aren’t wrong to call it La Cava del Tequila with the masculine form. The masculine form is generally preferred, at least in Mexico where it probably matters the most. I would think that if “el” was just as wrong as it could be that somebody would get it fixed in the name. As a reference, if you listen to the theme song to Robert Rodriguez’ film _Desperado_, Antonio Banderas sings it and very clearly sings “el tequila blanco” in the lyrics.

  • It might be more fun if it were La Cava da la Tequila, since tequila is a sustantivo femenino. Perhaps La Cava Taquilera?

  • yes please!
