The Jimador’ or harvester of agave plants is a romanticized profession in central Mexico. Roberto Jimenez Ramos uses his ‘Coa’ which is a unique tool designed specifically for culling the sharp external leaves of the blue agave plant in order to harvest the ‘Piña’, the body of the agave which is baked in large ovens in preparation for making tequila. These piña will be processed by the Tequila Ocho brand in Jalisco, Mexico. You will find heroic paintings of Jimadors in action in bars and restaurants all over tequila country but it’s much better to witness the action in person:)
I recently travelled to Jalisco, Mexico to photograph the world of Tequila production for a new @natgeo and @wsj magazine called Far & Away. The inaugural issue of the mag just came out in print over the weekend, delivered within the Wall Street Journal. ‘Tequila Rocks’ was an epic journey into the blue agave fields East of Guadalajara, to the rowdy bars of Tequila town.
