Tafer Hotels & Resorts is a chain of luxury vacation properties and resorts dedicated to providing signature experiences that truly complement your vacations and help you savor each and every moment of your stay. Tequila Tasting is just one of its many experiences offered to guests staying at its hotels and Resorts.
There’s more to tequila than shots with lemon and salt!
Tequila is certainly one of Mexico’s most famous traditions, and while the memory of downing shots of tequila in college and hiding the taste with lemon and salt may spring to mind, there is actually a lot more to tequila than a source of drinking games for drunken spring breakers. See Tequila – the Nectar a Nation.
The Tequila Tasting activity at Tafer’s resorts will surely inspire your love and respect for Mexico’s favorite liquor, teaching you all about the different types of tequila and how they are produced. You will discover how to identify the different types of tequila by their aromas, flavor and color, distinguishing the difference between white (silver), reposado (rested) and añejo (aged) tequila, learning how the whole process occurs from cultivating the blue agave cactus to distillation and aging. Your expert tequila guide will also be able to advise you how to pair your meals with the different types of tequila, just like a fine wine, and show you different ways of preparing the licor.
This activity is available at each of Tafer’s hotels and resorts for guests to enjoy and is a wonderful way to discover the artistry behind this national licor.
