Candy Shop Turns Tourist Stop with Mexican Tequila

Martin Markovits - CGTN America

April 19, 2017

For Luis Del Hoyo, getting creative with his candy shop led to an overwhelming demand for tequila that led to a world record title. His store is on the outskirts of Guadalajara, and received global attention after holding the 2014 Guinness World Record for having the most varieties of commercially-sold tequila.

Del Hoya’s inventory is like no other, and his store has become a mainstay on the local tourism circuit with people from all over the world coming to marvel at his tequilas.

Along with the variety of bottles, the offbeat brand names draw a lot of attention. One example is, “The Divorce and the Thousand Lovers” tequila, a joking reminder of what can happen when you drink too much tequila.

The recognition has made Del Hoyo happy and satisfied, but what really motivates him beyond the world-record status is his ability to supply tequilas that no one else can.
