This post will propose Tequila as a gorgeous destination for the next “Puente”. Why? Keep on reading!
- The birthplace of Mexican most iconic drink, Tequila
Beyond historical and cultural heritage, discovering the origins of this ancient drink is the strongest reason to visit Tequila. As this beverage is believed to be a gift of Pre-Hispanic deities, the homonym town is considered a site blessed by them. Besides, it is important to remember that tequila can only be produced in here because of the protected designation of origin.
First distilleries were stablished all around Tequila. Although some are ancient, they still are fully operational and distribute this drink all over Mexico and the world. Some distilleries like “La Rojeña” of Jose Cuervo® offer in-house tours where the elaboration process of tequila is revealed, and a degustation of the expert’s choice is made.
- Agave-field landscapes
Did you know that agave sceneries were an UNESCO-proclaimed World Heritage? You can admire them on your way to Tequila. While ridding on board Jose Cuervo Express®, you will go trough some breath-taking landscapes where agave-crops are undeniably the stars of the show.
Crops are spread on approximately 10 000 acres around the famous Tequila Volcano. Thanks to the richness of volcanic soil, conditions are simply perfect for growing Agave Tequilana Weber, the specie needed to elaborate tequila.
- Mouthwatering food
If you are looking forward to discovering a place, there’s no better way to do it than a culinary trip. Tequila is worldwide renowned for being the mecca of Mexican cuisine. Nothing but flavorful and delightful food will be waiting for you at this cozy town of Jalisco like “tortas ahogadas”, a warm and recomforting pozole (Mexican pork stew) and some “tacos de birria” (lamb stew tacos).
If you want to try these traditional dishes, Hotel Villa Tequila Restaurant® or La Antigua Casona at Hotel Solar de las Animas® are highly recommended. There you will find an amazing ambience and menus full of the most emblematic dishes in Tequila.
