Mayapan liquor is a 100% Blue Agava distilled beverage - but it can not be called legally tequilla, since it is not make is the state of Jallisco. (Just like California sparking whiite wine can not be legally called Champagne since it was not made in the provence of Champagne in France.) Too bad - as it only adds to the confusion to have to say it is really premium tequilla, but you can not call it that.
The brand new distillery, gift shop and demonstration tour area are all very nicely designed. There are also men's and women's bathrooms which are very clean and up to USA standards. The distillery is easy to find - as it is just a few kilometers North of the city of Valladolid on the main road leading to the Merida / Candun toll road.
We especially enjoyed the tour which included the horse walking around and around in circles pulling a large "crushing stone" to mash the agava "pineapples" before they are then allowed to ferment and then are distilled into the liquor.
The facility also has a tequilla shop - where they sell not only their own brand in "silver" reprosado and aenjo (spelling?), but other brands as well.
Be sure and buy a bottle of Mayapan liquor to take home with you - as Mayapan liquor is a "boutique" superior quality brand that will be very much enjoyed by any of your friends that are knowledgable tequilla drinkers.
