La Noria Artisan tour
The Blue Agave

The south of Sinaloa has a rich history in the planting and harvesting of blue agave. Through the years the surrounding areas of Mazatlan have witnessed the settlements of numerous factory Haciendas called Vinatas.

In 1876 the Osuna family started to plant and process the blue agave, with such a great success that more than 20 factories had to be installed in order to satisfy the big cities high demand. In the present time, inspired by this great history and heritage the new generations of Osuna decided to reopen the factory that had been dormant for over 30 years. Their main goal is to keep innovating the manufacturing process, in order to obtain the best quality for this famous Mexican drink, Worldwide known as Tequila.

We will start our 25 minutes drive heading north and after a while, we will be surprised with the amazing view of endless fields of blue agave. Suddenly, among them appears Hacienda Los Osuna, a popular Tequila distillery. The view here is splendid, a huge Huanacaxtle tree frames and shadows this mystical hacienda dated of the XIX century. The old fashioned procedure as well as the modern technique will be explained to you by your tour guide.

Our adventure will be completed with the visit to La Noria, a nearby colonial town with rustic factories, where local artisans work on handmade articles as: horse saddles, pottery and leather goods like, purses, belts and sandals.

For your appetite enjoyment, La Noria has a large variety of traditional dishes such as the burros prietos (dark burritos) and mole enchiladas. Recently, some of the local ladies gladly opened their homes, to offer restaurant facilities to sell these specialties at very reasonable prices.
