The Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, located on Banderas Bay on Mexico’s west coast, is now offering what it calls the Ultimate Tequila Tour, a special day trip that gives four guests a behind-the-scenes look into tequila making at the Jose Cuervo distillery. The family-run brand is largely considered the world’s first tequila maker, having produced the spirit for some 250 years.
The experience begins with a private helicopter ride from the resort to the Jose Cuervo distillery in Tequila, Mexico, about 150 miles east. A Jose Cuervo expert will lead the group on a private tour of the facility, providing samples of the tequila at various stages of maturity. Next, a Four Seasons chef will prepare a three-course lunch, which will be paired with tequila and live music, at the distillery’s scenic grounds—a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lastly, guests will visit Jose Cuervo’s special reserve vault—also known as a cava—to sample aged tequila straight from the barrel.
The Ultimate Tequila Tour is priced at $25,000 for a group of four and will be available exclusively to guests of the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita through the end of the year. (+52.329.291.6000, www.fourseasons.com/puntamita)
