Jose Cuervo is offering customers the chance to travel in an all-you-can-drink tequila train. No matter what level of tequila connoisseur you are, everyone is welcome on this tequila adventure.
Tequila is an alcohol made from the blue agave plant and must be made in Mexico. There are five types, and they’re all proudly produced in Mexico: silver, gold, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo. While Mexicans usually just drink the tequila, people around the world associate the alcohol with different things. Some know it as a shot with salt and lime, others take it in cocktails like margarita, tequila sunrise, and Paloma. All this information and more can be learned on the Jose Cuervo train.
The trip will take tequila-lovers from Guadalajara to Tequila, Mexico in a vintage train that provides unlimited tequila. The journey takes about one hour, so passengers need to know how to handle their alcohol well. There are three different tiers to choose from: Express, Premium, and Premium Plus. Each wagon offers different perks depending on the tier you chose. For example, the Premium Plus level costs around $130 per person, and you can travel in an exclusive wagon with a personal bar, waiters, and private quarters. No matter which level you choose, unlimited tequila is available for you.
Once the train arrives in the town of Tequila, passengers will get the chance to see the agave fields where their tequila was harvested and a tour of the 250-year-old distillery. Tequila Jalisco is filled with not only tequila, but also Mexican culture and beautiful scenery. It’s considered a pueblo magico (“magical village)—a title given to Mexican villages filled with culture, history, and natural beauty. Travellers can look forward to beautiful architecture, natural landscapes, and cultural traditions like La Benedición: when the priest offers a blessing at nine o’clock in the evening and the church bells chime.
Other than enjoying a lot of tequila, passengers on the Jose Cuervo Express get to learn a lot about Mexican culture and the origins of tequila. There’s a lot to see and learn, so it would be wise to drink responsibly. This is one time you don’t want that shot of tequila to get you blackout drunk.
