Heading to a local Tequila bar for Cinco de Mayo? Why not go straight to the source?
After leading industry groups through Tequila country for years, during May 2nd – 5th Spirit of Jalisco will host its first public tour of the Valley of Tequila in Jalisco, Mexico. This four day, three-night trip will take guests to some of the most celebrated distilleries in the region, including those of brands such as Fortaleza, Casa Noble, Tres Agaves, and Herradura.
On a typical tour, guests fly into Guadalajara and spend time in the Town of Tequila where they will taste a variety of premium Tequilas produced by some of the most venerated craft distilleries in the region. The trips will provide a truly authentic experience with walks through agave fields, conversations with jimadors (agave farmers) and Master Distillers, visits to family-operated distilleries, traditional regional cuisine - and of course - the finest Tequilas known to man. In sum, guests will taste all that the Valley of Tequila has to offer.
The tours demonstrate Spirit of Jalisco’s passion and commitment to educating consumers about the true craft of Tequila. “We all fell in love with Jalisco and the Valley of Tequila many years ago,” says Clayton Szczech, Spirit of Jalisco’s Director of Tequila Experiences and holder of a Double-T certification for excellence in Tequila education and Tequila tourism from Tequila’s Regulatory Council. “Our tours allow us to share insiders’ access to the amazing people, traditions, landscapes, and flavors that come together to produce premium, 100-percent agave Tequila.”
To ensure an amazing guest experience, Spirit of Jalisco has partnered with The Cabo Agency - one of the foremost tour operators to Mexico - which has successfully led guided tours all over Mexico for more than 20 years. Spirit of Jalisco packages can be purchased for individuals or groups. The Tequila tours are perfect for bachelor’s parties, weddings, custom tours, and more. Standard land package rates begin at $995 and include everything you will need once on the ground:
Unlike many other group tours, Spirit of Jalisco Tequila Distillery Tours are true adventures, offering the opportunity to embrace spontaneous experiences, tastes and fun. This is a rare chance for participants to quench their thirst for Tequila knowledge and walk away with a greater understanding of the many varieties and distilling traditions of different artisan producers of the region.
