When tequila spends time in a barrel, it leaves relaxed and more beautiful than when it went in. And now you too can be like that tequila. At the Matices Hotel de Barricas, visitors can stay in giant barrels located amidst Casa Cofradia’s agave fields, aging overnight and emerging fresh and ready to drink some agave spirits.
The hotel rooms (called “aged king” on the hotel website) are inside a number of giant wooden barrels scattered around the manicured agave rows. Each barrel room has a king bed and rain shower, and the view from outside the window looks out over the working farm. It’s the only hotel located on a tequila farm and distillery, surrounded by the sights, smells and sounds of agave harvest. In other words, it’s a tequila lover’s heaven.
