    Casa Herradura Tequila Tour

    by Agraichen Updated May 24, 2016

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The "tequila trail" from the sprawling metropolitan area of Guadalajara to the tiny town of Tequila has a number of locations where you can stop and taste the liquor of the same name. Some of the venues are not much more than tasting rooms but some have significant history in the region and although there is a charge it's well worth it.

    Founded in the late 1800s (est 1870) Herradura prides itself on producing 100% Blue Agave Tequila. The sprawling grounds include old homes which house some of the workers to this day. In addition is the main residence, old brewery and the current modern facility.

    A tour of the facility allows you to see how tequila is made from the early day to today. A full history of the facility from it's inception to the passing of ownership to Felix Lopez who began as the administrator of the distillery under the original owner can be found on Wikipedia at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tequila_Herradura

    The cost at Casa Herradura is 250-350 pesos depending on the tasting you wish to partake at the end of the tour. The lower price gets you El Jimador tequila; the higher Herradura tequila, including their older Anjeo.

    Address: Amatitan, Jalisco, Mexico

    Directions: Just before the village of Amatitan, turn east into the drive of Casa Herradura

    Martha Figueroa, furniture store

    by rafgys Written Jan 22, 2007

    Whether you're really looking for awesome furniture or just walking around the galleries and stores... Martha Figueroa is one of the nicest I saw in all the commercial area.

    It's kind of old-fashioned furniture... sofas, beds and whole bedrooms, even bars where you could hang out in your own living room! It's not cheap, but wow... it's so beautiful.

    They also have a restaurant in the backside, with the same "old-style" theme.

    Address: Calle Independencia no. 195-A

    Directions: Colonia Centro de Tlaquepaque, esquina Francisco de Miranda.

    Zona Comercial @ Independencia

    by rafgys Written Jan 5, 2007

    Besides the previous tip, you must walk along this street/area for pedestrians... visit all its galleries and say 'wow' at every single one! All the furniture stores are unbelievably beautiful, the hand-crafted stuff, the jewelry... everything with a exquisite colonial touch in the buildings.

    Sergio Bustamante's jewelry & sculpture store

    by rafgys Written Jan 5, 2007

    Bustamante is an amazing sculptor/designer... his signature is probably the triangle shaped heads of pretty much all of his most well-known sculptures. If you've ever been to Puerto Vallarta, you must have seen the ladder in the 'Malecon' with a whole family climbing it... well, that was made by Sergio Bustamante.

    He lives in Tlaquepaque, and his store shows his work (sculptures, jewelry and probably some other items, as well).

    Address: Independencia 238

    Directions: It's in the Zona Comercial... you can't miss the little statues in the sidewalk.

    Phone: (52-33) 3639-5519

    El Parian

    by rafgys Written Jan 5, 2007

    Whether you're (or you're not) hungry, thirsty or anything... you must get something in El Parian. It's an old one-whole-block building with at least eight different restaurants all around... and a gorgeous patio, with all the tables underneath the trees, with mariachis around, lot's of vegetation and a Mexican 'quiosco' in the middle.
