Are there any places to taste tequila in Mazatlan?

This question has "sort" of been asked before (quite a while ago) and "sort" of answered. I'll try it again to see if there is a more up-to-date definitive answer.

Are there any places to check out the tequila without buying a whole bottle? I'm thinking you could just go into any bar and order shots of whatever they have on the shelf, but thought there might be tequila stores that could accomodate the process better. Like there are several tequila stores in PV that will pour tastes for sampling with the hopes that you will buy a couple of bottles. Anything like that in Mazatlan?

1. Re: Are there any places to taste tequila in Mazatlan?

Best place I know of (and I am certainly not a Tequila Conniseaur) is Mr. Lionso's in Playa Bruja. They have many tasting samples and then sell the various varieties. We tasted a delicious almond tequila which I love and then my friend thought she could pick it up anywhere - not! And we never got back there for her to take a bottle home. There is a really good liquor store on the Malecon as well (at the cross street going to the Acquarium I believe) but I haven't checked out what they have. But I believe they have a good selection and good prices - just not sure about Tequilas. But for sure, it's not like PV where you can taste Tequilas every few stores down the road.

There of course is the Tequila Factory where you can take a tour to and they have a few different kinds that you can sample and buy the bottle of your choice. But I don't think there are stores in town that offer samples. I have never seen it.

Actually there might be a store/manufacturer in the Golden Zone. I have never been in there, and not even sure if it is still open. They offered various flavours of tequila. I will see if I can find anything on it.

Okay, thanks sunfunme. I can find Onlikan easily enough - think it might have been a jewelry store last time we were there. We'll check it out in a couple of weeks. Did the tequila factory and was a little unnerved by the required police escort.

Sounds like you haven't been in a while, Dugfir. Onilikan has been here for some time now with proud Canadian owners. Also not so sure about your comment about "required" police escort. Have a great time!

We have tasted the tequila at Mr. Lionso's at Playa Bruja as well. They have a few different flavours but my wife and I enjoy the coffee flavoured the best. They are definitely not stingy with the samples and will bring several around to your table. You can also dicker a bit on the price if you are buying a couple of bottles or more. We buy a couple of bottles to take home each time we are in Mazatlan.
