For tequila lovers, Mexico has a route of destinations in the state of Jalisco, where they can learn the manufacturing process and the new trends with which this traditional drink can be combined.
The adventure begins in Guadalajara, the capital of the state of Jalisco, the world's largest tequila producer. From here, fans of the iconic Mexican drink have the option of boarding trains that take them directly to the factories of two of tequila's most important manufacturing companies.
Aboard the Jose Cuervo Express, passengers admire the extensive agave crops that paint the countryside blue. This plant is the raw material for the production of tequila, a product that is a huge part of Mexico's cultural heritage and that, throughout history, has been positioned among the favorite drinks worldwide.
La RojeÃÂ±a, a distillery founded in 1812, is where users of the JosÃÂ© Cuervo Express arrive and carry out a series of activities that include a virtual explanation of the tequila production process, as well as a tour of the distillery. In addition, there are shops where they can buy different products and try tequilas in Bar de Margaritas.
The tour of the Hacienda begins in the Lemon Garden. It continues through Plaza Juan Soriano, the Tasting Rooms, and along the industrial facilities, where visitors learn about the distillation processes once the plants arrive directly from the field.
On the other hand, Herradura Express Train arrives at the Hacienda San JosÃÂ© del Refugio in the town of AmatitÃÂ¡n, where visitors can try tequilas and learn about the laboratory process, in addition to knowing the traditional ovens of Casa Herradura. Tours include guide services, tequila tastings, and visits to the towns of AmatitÃÂ¡n and Tequila. Once in the factory, visitors learn about the distillation process, warehouses, and the care given to the plant to ensure the best quality of tequila. In addition, the Hacienda is an exciting place for those who like ghost stories, given its long history.
Perseverancia, the manufacturer of Tequila Sauza, is another location ideal for tequila lovers. Tours include a trip to La Constancia, the shop where the plant ripens, a walk through the distillery, and a visit to the Casona de la Quinta Sauza. After that, visitors are asked to prepare their drink in the fabulous Jardin Quinta Sauza, and the tour ends in the shop Los Recuerdos de Sauza.
