An small artesanal distillery where you can appreciate all the process to create the tequila and of course taste all the variety that they produce. Great people, the tequila is also great and the souvenir store is great and the prices are fair enough. This visit was part of my tour with flavio tours, we really spend a good time... More

Didn't take more than 10-15 minutes. Jesse was our tour guide in English. Not my favorite tequila but it was worth the stop.

Call ahead to figure out when this place is open. The published hours proved to be inaccurate for us. This is a relatively new distillery which adheres to tradition and is remarkably simple. Tours are readily available in Spanish. If you want a tour in English, you may need to arrange something or wait a bit. The free tour itself... More

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
