Make your own bottle of Tequila

Tequila, Mexico

€123,46

In the area around the town of Tequila, in the state of Jalisco, greenish blue fields of agave stretch out as far as you can see. Since decades, the national spirit of Mexican Tequila is produced here. However, any drinks from the agave plant that were not distilled there are not officially Tequila.

At one of the oldest and biggest Tequila distilleries here you can feel like an authentic tequila master blender. At first, you will start by cutting the Agave plant – the first step for a successful tequila distillation. Afterwards, ferment and distill your plant to create your own liquor. Then, you will learn to combine aromas and flavors in order to take home the your very own tequila in a bottle.

After your creation of Tequila, join us for a visit to the magical town that gave the beverage its name. Ancient haciendas and distilleries still make the delicious Mexican emblem drink here. Tour the narrow streets, learn about the town’s legends and have fun in one of the countless bars and tasting spots of the town.

Upon your return to the Distillery, discover what smells and tastes hide in every drink of tequila with an expert-led tequila tasting at the end of your journey.

Reviews

  • "Away from the crowds"
    In this little distillery we had really the chance to learn what Tequila is all about and that is truly an art form. Participation in the whole process was great - even greater that we get to take a bottle of self-made Tequila home with us in the end!

  • "Real Tequila!!"
    It was great to see where tequila comes from. Starting with the cactus plant until the finished bottle. We could take part in all of it. Way better value than the traditional tours that seem more commercialized. Individual unique experience! Best part of it was making our own bottle of Tequila. Not quite sure if I am a master blender yet - but I will find out in a few months when my tequila is ready to be opened!

  • "Great adventure"
    We stayed in Guadalajara and heard about the Tequila Tours. We really wanted to do something special so this tour was perfect. In a group we arrived at a distillery that is not so known. We could take part in all the process of Tequila. I even cut one of the plants for making tequila. In the end we could mix and blend our own tequila and take a bottle of it home with us as memory. Can't wait to open it in a few months to taste what I created there!

  • "True Experience"
    Me and my husband felt so welcomed in this tour! It was a truly Tequila Experience - we were not in a crowd of people walking by some plants and a destillery but we really could work with the tequila master to make our own tequila. We both look forward to compare the Tequila we created in this workshop! Truly more informative than just a walking tour!
