Owner description: Explore the historic grounds where Tequila Herradura has flourished for over 145 years. Starting at the traditional residences where many Casa Herradura employees live, you will walk the roads of the hacienda as we guide you through the production process. Stops include visiting the masonry ovens where you’ll try the distinctive taste of cooked agave and see a live demonstration from our skilled Jimadors. From there, we’ll take you to visit our citrus groves and open-air fermentation tanks. Here, you’ll follow Tequila Herradura closely on its long journey to maturity until it reaches its distillation process. The day will end with an introduction to the world of Tequila Herradura’s most iconic spirits.

We visited the hacienda in July and had a great time. The guide was very good and shared a lot of interesting information about the place, the past and the processing of tequilla. He spoke fluently English as well as Spanish-we were a mixed group. It is impressive to see the process from the algaves to the tequila in the bottle. The cost was 100 Pesos/person which includes tasting of the 4 different tequilas. If you wanted to taste some of the more expensive tequilas, the anejos- the cost is 200 or 300 Pesos, depending how much you want to sample.

This is La Hacienda San Jose del Refugio is a wonderful combination of modern and traditional tequila techniques. The original facility is immaculately maintained and the modern part of the plant offers a chance to really see how special this area is. A wonderful experience if you are in the area - even if you were not a tequila fan you will become one after you see the facility.

What made this trip so special was, through friends, we were able to arrange a tour not only of the three generations of tequila factories, but also a private tour of the hacienda and its grounds. If one is to visit Herradura, attempt to get as complete a tour as is available.

Wow! What a place, what a tour! Our guide (Saoul) was absolutely excellent. Interesting, informed, genuinely friendly and happy to be providing the tour. The buildings are magnificent. Even the stone work on the ground is eye-opening. You get to tour the original distillery too with it's antiquated machines. Great for the price (I would have paid more if I had to). All in all a fantastic experience. So good I went back a month later with a different friend.

This is a great name in Tequila and visiting the old Hacienda and its buildings and fields is a learning and pleasant experience.
