Here is a quick overview on the Tequila experiences with Mundo Cuervo which await you in 2020.
Weddings – Something old, something new, and something agave blue: Yes, all those Insta-worthy spaces to show off couple goals, the sunset cocktails in the infinity pool overlooking the town of Tequila after a dual massage, and the custom-bended bottle of Tequila love to take home. But even more exciting: Would you take on the challenge of living through a real 3-day Tequila Wedding? Trust us, it’s not for the lighthearted.
Culinary – Would you try this 1,000 year-old recipe? In December 2020, Mundo Cuervo will welcome guests to the fourth edition of Fogones y Metates (Ovens and Fans), which aims to preserve and celebrate centuries-old rural cooking techniques of the women of Tequila. Each edition of this annual event features a special ingredient – from the rare blue mushrooms which grow at the base of the Volcano of Tequila, vibrant chilis which bring flavor to moles and more, to homage of the spicy, nutty pipián or pumpkin seed, which serves as the base for numerous dishes.
Sustainability – From straws to surfboards: Late last year, parent company Jose Cuervo presented The Agave Project, including the launch of the first drinking straw made from the agave plant. In Tequila, guests can explore in situ the many uses of the spiky, robust plant which serves as local artisans who turn agave into paper, handbags, and even surfboards! Sustainability efforts continue at Solar de las Animas hotel which reuses glass water bottles for lamps and jewelry, as well as with new sustainable ‘Tequila Sunrise’ experiences including a harvest with local farmers at the El Chiquihuitillo ranch.
Culture – This train takes you back from the dead: Spirits of all types come alive at night in Tequila with this very special celebration of life and afterlife. Shrouded by the night, on November 1 guests will take a deep dive into the culture and history of Tequila with tales from spirited storytellers, tastings, theater, and the lighting of the altar. After a deep sleep at hotel Villa Tequila or Solar de las Animas, guests can enjoy a visit to the La Rojeña Distillery, visit the agave fields and travel back to Guadalajara on the Jose Cuervo Express Sunset train.
Adventure – Horseplay: Tequila has a full experience for lovers of four-footed adventures. Ride through the agave fields and along the foothills of the extinct Tequila Volcano on horseback, learn of the UNESCO-protected art of the charrería at the newly opened exhibition at the Juan Beckmann Cultural Center, visit the artisanal saddle-making talabartería shops of Jalisco, and stay in a room at the newly renovated Villa Tequila Hotel which has been artfully converted from a colonial carriage house to welcome visitors.
There is also a mushroom festival in August, International Tequila Day festivities on July 24…and much more!
