Tequila

18 May 2017
What a fun day! Our Viator guide Ronnie picked us up at 9:00 am and we headed for the town of Tequila to visit both an artisanal distillery, Amanecer Ranchero, and the larger distillery of Casa Sauza. Ronnie gave us a glimpse of the world of agave and tequila creation – he owns an agave ranch! He is a full time guide, but farms on the weekends at his family’s ranch. He sells his agave plants to both small and large distilleries – so our first stop was at a friend’s tequila distillery to see how the operation worked and to sample the different tequilas – Bruce of course had to take one of the bottles home with him! Our second stop was Casa Sauza, a large operation where we learned about planting, harvesting, distilling and packaging the agave plants into tequila. It was a great learning experience (and we decided the highlight of our trip). I must report that two more bottles of tequila found their way home with us – one is destined for my brother and dad in OKC, so no worries for over consumption!
