If Mexico is synonymous with tequila, then Puerto Vallarta is the motherload! Jalisco is the home of tequila, and Puerto Vallarta Tequila is one of the state’s best quality drops.
Tequila is made from the extracted nectar of agave plants. There are several types: there’s blanco for mixing a margarita, an aged tequila called Reposado distilled for up to a year, and longer aged tequilas called anejo and premium anejo, which ferment for up to three years.
You can sample tequila at bars and tequila houses in downtown Puerto Vallarta.
To learn more, organized tours visit agave plantations and a tequila factory where you can taste the Nectar of the Gods and learn a little about the distilling process.
