Experience Tequila is an official partner of the Tequila Trail (“La Ruta del Tequila“), and a recipient of the Tequila Regulatory Council‘s prestigious “Double T” certification. We are the only company from outside Mexico, and the only native English speakers to earn this honor. The certification indicates that Experience Tequila proudly promotes the region’s culture, involves the local population, employs sustainable environmental practices, provides excellent customer service and educates guests about CRT regulations for the production and consumption of authentic tequila.
