Tequila: the drink that makes a margarita so delicious. It's pretty darn tasty on its own, too. Get collected from Guadalajara and whisked to a tequila distillery for a guided tour, plus the full lowdown on the fermentation process and a tasting or three!
Where better to learn the ins and outs of tequila than in the land it comes from?
Join your tequila-loving guide for a tour of the famed agave fields known as 'the Buenos Aires of Mundo Cuervo'! Learn the tools and rules of harvesting the agave plants from a jimador - a Mexican farmer whose sole job is to harvest agave plants. Someone has to make sure your tequila starts off right!
In Tequila (the town not the drink - wait your turn!), you'll learn the tequila-making process at the oldest factory in Latin America, La Rojeña. Taste tequila made from cooked agave, and then try the finished stuff from the bottle. A tour through their tequila-making facility is a tour to remember... or forget, if you drink too much. No judgement here.
With free time in the town of Tequila before heading back, opt for a meal in the Cleofas Mota market, or one of the picturesque restaurants. Or just continue to check out the different brands of tequila. With salt and lime at the ready, you'll be all set to taste the goods. It's important to do your research properly, after all.
