Imagine a distillery manufacturing plant. Izamal is located 3.5 hour drive West of Cancun Mexico. In the colonial city Izamal, at the end of Calle (Street) #42 you will find the Destilería Sisal (manufacturing plant which opened September 2003). Mr. Mario Sánchez Casales is the owner operator of this plant. He employs about eight employees that are engaged in the manufacturing and bottling of 40 varieties of alcoholic beverages.

Henequen is closely related to Agave and is distilled in the same way. However, due to trademark restrictions, this flavor of liquor can not be called tequila because Taquila is only produced in and around the town of Tequila in the western state of Jalisco, Mexico. During our visit on Sunday we found workers harvesting raw Henequen (like Agave) materials for future processing. We unfortunately missed talking with Mr. Mario Sánchez Casales as the plant is open Monday through Friday. Plant tours are free. It is necessary to promote product sales in order to support the local economy. Yes, while eating dinner at the renowned "Kinich Resturant" we did see a tequila like product labeled simply "Izamal" for sale.
