When I first saw the Tezón tequila bottle I was fascinated by it's design. One thing I had to know was how the two engraved metal plates were attached to the bottle. Once the bottle is hand inspected for any flaws it travels to a table of people who concentrate on the plates. The metal plates are adhered to the bottle using a hot melt adhesive and then pressed with specially engineered presses that wrap around the sides of the bottle. It's a neat process to watch and just as much thought was put into the lid of these bottles. A cork is topped with a flat, round, black volcanic stone-like material reminiscent of the tahona wheel. The Tezón bottles are a work of art.
