Cozumel Mexico has many attractions, but there is only one Hacienda Antigua in Cozumel. It is a replica of the real Hacienda that resides in Guadalajara. Although our replica is not a working Tequila factory; the one in Guadalajara IS! The picture on the right is a shot of the actual factory.
There are 162 types of Tequila, but they all fall under five main categories; piña (Pineapple), Mescal, (which is the crudest form because of the plant), Blanco (first stage), Reposado (which is aged for 6 months), and Añejo (which is the best and is aged for 13 months).
Many of you know Mescal because of the worm in the bottom of the bottle. It is actually made with the variety of Tequila plant that has worms in it, hence the worm in the bottle!
The three main types of Tequila plants are Pineapple, Mescal, and Blue Agave (this is the best one). Some of you also use another relative of the Tequila plant without even knowing it! It is called "Aloe Vera"!
