In the wake of taking a pandemic delay a year ago, the renowned Jose Cuervo Express, Mexico’s extravagance tequila train, is in the groove again and tolerating bookings for 2021.
The current year’s tickets are being gobbled up rapidly, because of a mix of repressed interest and decreased limit. The train is just working all other Saturdays, with a set number of accessible passes to conform to government limitations.
The tequila train experience is worked by Jose Cuervo, a name inseparable from tequila. In 1758, 3/4 of a century prior to Mexico turned into an autonomous republic, King Ferninand VI of Spain gave land to Jose Antonio de Cuervo y Valdes to start developing agave. After 37 years, his child, Jose María Guadalupe de Cuervo, started selling the absolute first Vino Mezcal de Tequila de Jose Cuervo in the wake of accepting the principal official sanction to create tequila economically.
The Jose Cuervo Express offers two schedules. The principal, the “dawn” agenda, leaves Guadalajara at 9 a.m. for two-hour train venture through 40 miles of agave fields to the town of Tequila in the territory of Jalisco. By law, genuine tequila must with blue agave filled in one of five Mexican states — Jalisco, Michoacan, Nayarit, Guanajuato and Tamaulipas.
On board the train, a specialist tester controls a tasting of different premium Jose Cuervo tequilas. In the wake of landing in Tequila, visitors visit the Cuervo creation offices, eat and take in a Mexican show prior to finishing the evening with an exhibit of agave collecting.
On the off chance that you like to test tequila at a better hour, the “dusk” agenda bodes well. You start the visit at 9 a.m. at the Cuervo packaging plant with the agave-reaping demo, and afterward hit every one of the components of the principal agenda yet in switch request. The day slows down with the two-hour train venture and installed tequila tasting, with the train showing up back in Guadalajara at 8 p.m.
Ticket costs range from $116 to $166, contingent upon which of the four sorts of train vehicles you pick. At the least finish of the value range, three Express traveller carts have wood-framed insides and offer mentor seating. The following level up is Premium Plus, which accompanies a bar and server administration. A portion of the wood-framed carts offer private tables for four, while others offer parlour seating.
The two top levels offer next-level extravagance. The new Elite carts highlight agreeable sofas, colossal windows for watching the Mexican field move by, and different rooms with both table and parlour seating just as a committed free drinks. At long last, the Diamond cart is the best on the Jose Cuervo Express, with velvet bended couches, an excellent embellished rooftop and different rooms, including a committed bar administration and servers.
