WASHINGTON, DC - The Smithsonian Institution is building its first tequila distillery on the National Mall. That's right. The family friendly museum complex is preparing to brew booze. The catch is there won't be a drop of tequila to drink.

The annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival, running June 24-28 and July 1-5, will feature several exhibits on Mexican culture, with demonstrations on traditional foods and agricultural techniques. This includes the tequila-making station to highlight the country's native agave plant.

Globefill, Inc., parent company for the high-profile, celebrity-backed Crystal Head Vodka, took on the "Goliath" role, filed a lawsuit against Element's Spirits, Inc., and its CEO, Kim Brandi accusing Elements of trademark infringement and unfair competition. Globefill then tried to prevent distribution of KAH™ Tequila in the United States by filing a motion for preliminary injunction.
