The Land of Tequila Tour
Come with us on this five hour trip and discover the birthplace of MexicoÂ´s national drink.
The drive to the charming town of Tequila is a great opportunity for you to admire the beauty of the vast fields of bluish-green agave plants, blending with the earth tones and greens of the countryside.
This charming town, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, also known as Pueblo Mágico is the home of MexicoÂ´s national drink, Tequila which is distilled from the Blue Agave plant. We will go on a short visit of downtown Tequila with its many distilleries and haciendas, many of which are made of brick and adobe, which stucco walls with an ochre lime-wash, stone arches, quoins and window frames. Most are decorated with Neoclassical or Baroque ornamentation. The production of tequila represents the fusion of the pre-Hispanic tradition of making alcohol with agave with European distilling techniques.
Then we will visit a working distillery where you will be able to observe the fascinating process for the production of this exquisite tipple. And once the visit is over you will be invited to a Tequila tasting where you will learn how to tell the difference between the different types of tequila: blanco,reposado and añejo.
