Casa Herradura and Cantaritos El Güero

Amatitlán

As you pass through this tequila region, you can’t miss the process behind this popular distillate.

In Amatitán you’ll find Casa Herradura in the 1870-founded Hacienda San José del Refugio. The experience inside its doors is unforgettable, since you’ll know the whole process behind the tequila—from the moment agave’s heart (piña) is cut, baked and fermented, until it turns in the liquid that shall rest in barrels to become tequila.

Visiting the 1997-established Los Cantaritos El Güero is a must-see tradition—you can order there a “paloma” of various liters for sharing with your friends. Palomas —tequila with grapefruit soda, citrus juices and ice— are served in “cantaritos de barro” (a little clay jug).

It’s important to talk about the famous huge clay jugs that have made it famous. It’s amazing to see how people at the bar can pour 5 soft drinks at the same time. Obviously the bigger the jug, the more you can share.

After visiting this place that protects one of the most important treasures in the world, you’ll want all your friends to visit it at least once in their life.
