TEQUILA, Mexico – A second Tequila Train will begin operating in April in the southwestern state of Jalisco, giving tourists a first-hand look at the blue agave plantations that are the source of Mexico’s world-renowned alcoholic beverage.

The tour will begin around midday at a train station dating back to the late 19th century that Tequila Cuervo La Rojeña, maker of the world famous Jose Cuervo brand, is renovating outside Guadalajara, Jalisco’s capital.

“We want the tourist to be seduced by the aromas, the colors and the history that surrounds this beverage. For it to be an educational, intimate experience in which they can taste a good tequila and are left with pleasant memories” of the Jalisco town that gives the blue agave-based spirit its name, she said.

The train trip will be based on the same concept as the “Mundo Cuervo” visitor and events center tours, which the company has run for several years to walk tourists through its 250-year-old tequila-making process.

The agave landscape and the ancient industrial facilities of the town of Tequila were included in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s World Heritage List in 2006. EFE
