Tequila 101 Weekend ExperienceThis brand-new offering is perfect for guests looking an introduction to the world of Tequila. It packs all the education and fun of the single-day Valley of Tequila tour into a stress-free weekend, with hotels, airport pickups and transportation all arranged in advance – all you have to do is show up in Guadalajara!
Upon Your ArrivalThe trip starts out when you arrive at the airport in Guadalajara (guests can also be picked up from bus terminals, or other locations, with advanced notice). You will be met by our friendly driver, and ferried to the town of Tequila, where you will check in to Hotel Solar de Animas [link]. You’ll enjoy a relaxing evening in this small, charming town, with restaurant recommendations and sights to see provided by Spirit of Jalisco.
Tequila TourThe next day you are off to the races on an all-day Valley of Tequila tour, returning that evening to the town of Tequila, and hotel Solar de Animas. 10:00: Pickup at hotel, depart for Tequila
Shopping, Sipping, RelaxingThe final day is a relaxing, open one, where guests will have the opportunity to purchase bottles for their trip home. Transportation back to the airport is included with the package.
Distilleries & TastingsAlthough every distillery we visit on our tours produces great Tequila, each will have their own distinct philsophy and process. For some, that means using autoclave ovens and roller mills to extract sugars from the agave. For others, it calls for old-fashioned stone ovens and a 2-ton stone wheel named a 'Tahona'. After traversing the grounds of each distillery, guests will be able to see first hand how different techniques contribute to the final product by tasting a flight of Tequila.
