Casa Sauza

Distillery in Tequila

The Casa Sauza estate invokes Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic fairy tale The Secret Garden. The colonial-style grounds are adorned with Italianate fountains, tumbling plants and even a chapel. Indeed, ‘tequila factory’ are the last words that spring to mind as you recline in the sun-streaked bar. Nonetheless, tequila has been made here for eons and still is. Basic tours of Casa Sauza's Perseverancia Distillery last 1½ hours.

Longer tours of the estate, lasting 2½ hours and costing M$160, take in the adjoining botanical gardens and agave fields as well as the distillery.
