But it may not be long before they list the distinctive product from Mexico - made from the fermented juice of agave plants - among their favorite drinks, after local officials agreed to promote the fiery drink in the province.

Two agreements have been signed: one with Agave Conquista, considered the world's only organic Mexican tequila-producing "chateau", and the other with Mexican jockey club Amccra Caballo Raza Azteca to bring its equestrian skills to Wudang district in Guiyang, the provincial capital.
