Tequila is about half an hour away from the city of Guadalajara, making it the perfect destination for a day trip from Guadalajara. It was very interesting to learn about the history of Tequila, the process of the distillery and of course I enjoyed the tequila tastings very much! By the way and FYI..... I learned that taking tequila shots is NOT the proper way to drink your tequila! You are actually supposed to sip and enjoy your tequila in a similar way to the way you enjoy a glass of wine. Gracias Tequila, for teaching me the proper way to enjoy tequila and for helping me expand my tequila collection. Salusita! Cheers!
