Very small factory at the side of the cuota between Merida and Cancun, at the Valladolid turn-off. The tour was very short, and as there was no English speaking guide, our Mexican friend did the translation. It was interesting to know how tequila is made though, and something new to tick off on the long list of things to do.

This place is really worth a stop, if you are in the area. It is a fascinating small organic family business that distils small amounts of the agave liqueur (tequila, in all but name.) Tours are available in English and are led by one of the family members. They have a very good grasp of English and are extremely passionate... More

I live in Akumal, about 100+ kilometers from Valladolid, so this is a very good opportunity to see the processes involved with making tequila, even though, technically, this cannot be tequila. It was a slow Wednesday around noon, and they had to get a tour guide from the fields, as well his amigo to lead the horse around the crushing... More

My girlfriend and I took the tour and were fascinated by the traditional nature of this operation. They do everything manually, and the amount of work that goes into producing the "tequila" at the end is staggering. We enjoyed the tour and the tasting, although I am not a fan of tequila. My girlfriend bought some in the shop, as... More

We were fortunate enough to be at the distillery on a Thursday when they cook the "pineapples". My husband and I were the only tourists there and the owner took us for a tour. It was so fascinating to watch how Tequila is made. It was a great tour and would highly recommend it.

Tour was only 30 pesos per person and ended with tasting of all the tequila. It was interesting to see how it was made from plant to bottle. Worth the stop.
