The Art of Tequila Making

The Herradura Distillery Tour is an enticing journey through the entire tequila-making process. Led by knowledgeable guides, you'll gain insight into the meticulous craft that goes into producing this iconic Mexican spirit.

Witness first-hand the labor-intensive process of planting, caring for, and harvesting ripe agave, ensuring only the highest quality plants are used in the production of Herradura tequila.

Once the agave is ready, the time-honored tradition of roasting and extracting the juice begins.

From there, the fermentation, distillation, and aging processes take place, each adding unique characteristics to the final tequila product.

During the tour, you'll have the chance to see the colossal oak barrels lining the aging cellars, where Herradura tequila matures and develops its distinct flavors over time. Learn about the different types of barrels used and how they contribute to the complexity and richness of the final product.
