Departing from Mexico’s second largest city, Guadalajara, the Herradura Express started in April 2017 and will run on weekends and certain holidays through the end of the year. You’ll be treated to stunning views of the Jalisco countryside as you enjoy entertainment, food, and tequila during the course of the ninety-minute train ride to Amatitán.
The train is just the start of the luxury experience, though. Once you arrive in Amatitán, you get to experience what makes tequila, tequila—Casa Herradura has been making the spirit for almost one hundred and fifty years.
Herradura offers five different expressions of their tequila, ranging from their Silver, which is aged for just forty-five days, to their Seleccíon Suprema, the brand’s extra añejo (extra aged) spirit, which is aged for forty-nine months. In addition, they produce a Coleccíon de la Casa special release once per year. Their most recent is a reposado tequila aged for eleven months and finished in port wine casks.
Herradura, it’s safe to say, knows how to do it right. Not only do you get to try some delicious spirits, but you also get a holistic view of everything that makes the Jalisco region unique and special.
If you’ve not been to Jalisco before, there’s really only one way to do it right the first time. Move over, Amtrak; it’s time for the Tequila Herradura Express.
