Rise early and meet your guide at your Guadalajara hotel to begin your adventure into the heart of the Jaliscan countryside. During your air-conditioned minivan journey to the town of Tequila, admire scenic sights of green, undulating hills before stopping to marvel at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed agave azul (blue agave) fields. Listen as your guide offers more information about the succulent agave plants and appreciate the natural splendor of the landscape.
Arrive at traditional Tequila and purchase an authentic Mexican lunch before continuing onto the chosen distillery of the day (usually Casa Sauza). Tour the globally renowned distillery in a small group, immersing yourself in the past and present of tequila-making processes. Discover the drink’s illustrious history, uncovering its indigenous origins and witnessing the fermentation process in an establishment that has bottled the beverage for hundreds of years.
Taste tangy tequila straight from the oak-aged casks it’s fermented in, sampling a selection of types as an expert connoisseur guides you through the distinct aromas and tastes. Savor the rich flavor and sublime subtleties of the drink before returning to your comfortable mini van.
Return to your Guadalajara hotel with your guide in the early evening.
