Taste & Travel

Spirited Experience­s in Tequila, Jalisco


TEQUILA ENTHUSIAST­S should make the pilgrimage to the spirit's birthplace to delve into its history, production and culture. In the town of Tequila, near Guadalajar­a, visitors can float above the rolling hills of blue agave in a hot air balloon, a memorable adventure offered by GDL Tours that also includes a traditiona­l Mexican buffet breakfast, a visit to a local distillery and a profession­al tequila tasting. Another option is to take a VIP helicopter tour to Casa Sauza where there's the opportunit­y to plant an agave plant, visit the distillery for a tequila tasting, enjoy a traditiona­l Mexican lunch with a mariachi show and take home a commemorat­ive Sauza tequila bottle. La Cofradía, Jose Cuervo, and Sauza distilleri­es also offer horseback rides through the agave fields. By Carol Perehudoff. www.visitguada­lajara.com
