The Tequila Train Serves Bottomless Shots of Your Favorite Agave Spirit

If all-you-can-drink tequila makes your heart beat faster, then best you book a sleeper cabin on the Jose Cuervo Express. The vintage black and white locomotive has been chugging through the Mexican countryside for the past eight or so years, but has recently started offering a new elevated experience fit for the most discerning tequila sippers.

The train travels from the city of Guadalajara, through the untouched Mexican countryside, to the tiny town of Tequila. After the 11-hour journey aboard the Tequila Train, guests ride in an elegant wood-panelled car known as the Elite Wagon. The lux ride features floor-to-ceiling windows and should offer up views as intoxicating as anything served on the train.

The new Elite experience offers guests access to two plush lounge areas and a premium open bar fully stocked with Reserva de la Familia, Maestro Dobel, Gran Centenario and 1800. If you get sick of añejo, there’s also rum, vodka, whiskey and a new line of custom cocktails. 

Beyond the drinks, you’ll be treated to delicious regional snacks to get a real taste of Mexico and enjoy some onboard fun and games. Along the route, a master tequilier (a sommelier of tequila) will also guide you through a three-glass tasting and give more context to the spirit so you can better appreciate what you’re sipping.

To top it off, you’ll take a trip to Latin America’s oldest distillery, Jose Cuervo’s La Rojeña, and even walk through agave fields if conditions permit.

The entire Elite experience is priced at about $166 per person and can be taken at sunrise or sunset.
