All aboard the Jose Cuervo Express train to the Magical Town of Tequila. That is right, Tequila is coming from the same name town in Jalisco, Mexico; just a few hours away from Guadalajara.
Jose Cuervo, who has its family distillery there since 1795 as well as its agave fields offers one of the best day tours. A day tour in the heart of Tequila.
The Tequila Train departs at 9am passing by multiple villages and spiky-blue agave fields. The tasting starts right on the train as you will be welcomed with a pink margarita and you will be offered unlimited Margaritas, Palomas or shots if you have a solid stomach.
Upon arrival at Tequila, you will start the fun-filled day with a visit at the distillery La Rojena where “Pepe” the Cuervo Crow welcomes you to the tasting. You will get to see some 100-year-old tequila stored at La Reserva Familia – a unique and smooth Anejo – as well as the distillation process. The tasting ends at one of the many open bars on site.
After a lunch break in the Pueblo Magico where you can enjoy some authentic tacos at Fonda Cholula and admire the colorful town, the afternoon festivities start with a colorful Mexican show. You will admire the dancers and the Mariachis while sipping on some more tequila.
Finally, right on time for sunset, you will head to the agave fields. Anthony, one of the Jimadores, demonstrates how the agave pina is harvested. You will then have time to take many Instagram worthy pictures on the Spiky-Blue Agave Fields and dance the night away on the dancefloor installed next to the field. It all comes with an open bar of course. The perfect way of ending this magical day.
For the night you can return to Guadalajara or spend the night at Tequila at the amazing Solar de Las Animas Hotel.
