…today we journeyed in our Ford Explorer to Corrolejo to the Tequila Distillery in search of blue bottles to add to the adornment at the Chapel of Jimmy Ray. It is only 1.5 hours from here…an easy drive. We pulled up to the Front Gate of the Distillery which is housed in a former hacienda built during the Modernist Period…it is quite spectacular and reminded us of Barcelona. We were greeted by the General manager and I introduced myself as an artist from San Miguel. He was quite generous and we were given a private tour of the facility by a young man and woman. Later the General Manager…Don Leonardo took us in his Mercedes to the Bottle Factory and he showed us the whole production. We were very impressed and grateful for his generosity…we purchased a huge amount of blue bottles…..the first of many trips….I promise…I felt like I was in some wonderful magic time bubble and the atmosphere was dripping with ideas that I gathered and brought back with me for the continued adornment of our world here at Casa de Las Ranas…Viva Mexico!
