Tour was only 30 pesos per person and ended with tasting of all the tequila. It was interesting to see how it was made from plant to bottle. Worth the stop.

Take the tour! Not only do you see how tequila is made, but you have the opportunity to taste 3 different ages.

Interesting tour but... When we asked them to call us a taxi they said just walk over there and a taxi will come. Yeah right... Blisteringly hot on what is basically a freeway. Walked about a mile before a cab stopped. He already had a passenger but still charged us 20 pesos more than the guy who took us out there. make sure you have a lift back to valladolid first.

The Desterileria is about 5km +/- north of the city--about 50 pesos (about US$4.50) by taxi. This was such a fun part of our vacation. Enrique gave my bf and I a tour which took about 30 min. He walked us through the whole process. It was great! At the end we got to sample the different products.
One tip if you are visiting Valladolid and the distileria: After the distileria, go take a dip at one of the cenotes, as it only a few km beyond the destileria. This will save you a trip back to the town.

I had heard the hearts of the agave were called pineapples (piñas) and had this preconceived notion of them being the size of pineapples as well. Was I wrong! The piñas are huge. It must take two or three men to move them! But they did have the wonderful aroma of pineapples as they were cut to smaller sizes, crushed, fermented and then distilled. We sampled three types of the liquor: white, aged and old. The color got darker with age and the taste became smoother and more complex. Well worth the short trip to see everything in action. Nice gift shop as well with a number of things that are hard to find outside specialty shops. They cannot legally call this tequila but for all intents and purposes, that's what it is.
