Close contact with the sacred can be dangerous for the uninitiated. For this reason the Aztecs were strict about who could drink pulque, the fermented juice from the agave plant. Pulque was medicine, a tool for seeking the divine, and a bringer of happiness. (Much like its modern-day cousins, tequila and mezcal.) As practical as it is profound, the agave plant also provided early Mesoamericans with a hydrating and energizing food source and fibers for ropes and textiles. Tequila is still sipped across Mexico (and the world) to promote communion with the divine, a toast to life. Wear the agave to awaken the latent sacred within — while reveling in life’s more carnal pleasures.
